what we get up to at this time of year…

To be honest it does go very quiet here in the office over Winter so keeping motivated to prepare for those busy weekends in Spring is all important.

Last week we did recce’s for two of Marie Curie’s adventure races (Whole Hog’s) ie Brecon Beacons and Cornbury park. Both of these venues look like being excelent race venues with a great find at the Brecon race of a 200 metre long tunnel!! Lets just say we are quite excited about that (we dont get out much). Cornbury is also an excelent venue with plenty of good challenges to look forward to! see their website for more details: http://www.mariecurie.org.uk/en-gb/events/adrenaline-experiences/

We also managed a recce of the RNLI’s South Wales cycle ride which involved Stuart cycling 50 miles in the pouring rain and strong winds!! Luckily his camera stayed dry so it was all worthwhile. For more details: http://www.rnli.org.uk/rnli_near_you/west/events

I was in Consiton (Lake District) preparing for two multi event challenges which will involve walking up the Old Man of Coniston,  canoeing a few miles around lake Coniston and finally an exciting cycle around Grizedale! What a playground the Lake District is!!   

Finally, I had some time planning the new 55 mile Ultra race we are putting on in Sheffield during the Summer. This week I get to run it (though not all in one go) so that we can get a GPS plot of the route! Hopefully well have the permission for what looks like being a great race soon!

So, if you were wondering – now you know!
