Eight Point Two


#SpringTrails

Photo: Summit Fever Media

As the last patches of snow start to disappear the trails are getting greener and Spring is most definitely on its way. Gloves and hats can be put back into the pack and time to dig out those sunglasses, well … almost! It’s hard not to enjoy Christmas and New Year and runners training programmes for their 2015 race schedule are kicking into action. Those first few long runs are always the tough ones but the rewards are just as great. 2015 looks to see some exciting new kit on the horizon, Mammuts trail running range is set to develop further and Ultimate Direction continue to push the boundaries of running pack design. As well as starting your training plan it’s a good time to get out all your running kit and have a proper sort out. Those well used shoes with your toes poking out probably justify a new pair, they’ll come in handy when you want to paint that room in the house that you promised you’d do. Lightweight waterproofs and wind proofs are ideal as the days get longer and the temperatures start to rise. An easy way to improve your times in races, whatever level you are is to reduce the weight of the kit that you’re carrying. Why not fill your pack as you would normally for a race, weigh it with some luggage scales or bathroom scales. Now flick through the pages on Outside, finding the lightest alternative for each piece of kit you’ve got in your pack (including the pack!). Add up this weight and see what the difference is, don’t forget, if you weighed your pack originally with water or nutrition to include this too (1L=1Kg). If you’re lucky there won’t be much difference, but you might find a big one – then you can work out what pieces of kit will give you the best weight saving. New kit, whether it’s a new pack or a pair of socks will help encourage you to get out and train. Don’t miss out on those bargains too, there are plenty to be had, check you the Outside bargain area and look for special offers. Happy New Year from all the Dig Deep team and welcome to 2015!

Dig Deep Races 2014

Dig Deep Races 2014

Our Dig Deep Race Weekend will soon be upon us (June 21st/22nd 2014)- and it’s time to brush off the cobwebs, and make sure you keep up the running over the winter.  Yes, we know it’s dark and cold but start now and you’ll be grateful for our words of wisdom come June 21st!   As an added incentive to get those entries in and sign up to the 60 mile UTPD (if you think you’re tough enough) or the Intro Ultra (a great first time ultra event) we are going to be launching a competition in association with Mammut and our retail partner,  Outside – the outdoorsy person’s 2nd home.

So, without further ado – this is what you can expect to get:

We are going to choose three winners to star in three short films, which will be all about how you train and prepare for the UTPD or Intro Ultra on June 22nd 2014.  The winners will also get lots of lovely Mammut kit to wear in the films and lots of goodies from Outside!

Outside will be donating to the prize package:

1x Ultimate Direction Acces Waistpack (rrp £27.50)

1x Pair of Injinji Trail Mini  (rrp £16)

1 Pair of Injinji Trail Micro (rrp £15)

Mammut will be donating:

1 x tech tee

1 x pair of shorts

1 x jacket

And to help you along with your training we will give you free entry into the Eight Point Two Resolution Run in January!

We will be launching the competition on the 13th of December so keep an eye on our Facebook page for details on how to enter.

We would like to say a massive thanks to:

Outside, Mammut, Injinji and Ultimate Direction for their contributions.

The items pictured are subject to change (colour/style) dependent on stock.
