A fab time was had by all (especially once it was completed!) on the adidas Terrex Swift last month. This 48hour multi-sport race including running, trekking, mountain biking, canoeing, caving and abseiling around the Yorkshire Dales Sat 2 – Mon 4 June. Feel the pain and elation of the competitors through their uncensored blog reports on the Open Adventure facebook page.

  • Tri Adventure Experience – Swinley forest
  • Questars – Purbecks
  • For race reports see SleepMonsters

Stay tuned…

…for the next newsletter and further updates. We’ll be starting work on the AR ball and awards shortly. For your opportunity to attend the ball and nominate + vote in the awards join UKAR club now.


Got a story?

We want to spread the adventure racing love to everyone in UKAR Club, so if you have a story, event to promo, or link to your blog with a recent race/training report, send them to Claire Maxted csmaxted@gmail.com and I’ll do my best to include it in the next newsletter.

NB: 30-100 words plus pic is best. If you write it like the above (title, story, link) so I just have to copy and paste it into the newsletter it will definitely go in, if you just send me a jumbled list of stuff I might not have time to re-jig it so it might not go in. Hope that makes sense. Thank you, CM
