New Haglöfs Adventure Race Series

New Haglöfs Adventure Race Series

planetFear Open12 experience the North York Moors

If you have taken on an Open5 why not try a couple back to back with a rest in the middle. This is the Open12 on 25/26th June - but don't expect the usual Open5 rules to apply, we chuck them out of the window here and apply an extra helping of our special stages.

Wayne Elliott is the man behind this event and we can let you know now - registration is in Pickering (not that gives away much J). Entries are stil open here. Closing date 19th June

planetFear Open5+ see the other side of Anglesey

Ah now if you were busy over last weekend and not in Anglesey you missed a real treat. Few people thought that we could pack so much in to 5 hours especially on Holyhead - this coupled with some pretty amazing weather left us with an event not to forget. Dave Macfarlane was in attendance with a video camera check out the video short here.

Ocean Kayak Race

Our water safety guy James Stevenson's home patch is Anglesey with us down that neck of the woods we helped him put on the inaugural Ocean Kayak Race - with 5 routes up our sleeve pending the weather we had all the bases covered. It was a special day out as Adventure Racers met Racing Kayakers - there is a short video of the event here. Looks like we will back next year.
