Latest race reports

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 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
