30 Spectacular Years of Adventure

” I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it’s very difficult to find anyone.” “I should think so- in these parts!

HSX Annual Adventure Race – Results

Now in it’s 2nd year, the eagerly anticipated HSX Winter Adventure Race gave 18 competitors the opportunity to lose all feeling in their feet. Sub zero temperatures and some sneaky control placements meant some runners learnt some route choice lessons the hard way, by ending up waste deep in freezing bogs. The route planner (me) also learnt something about remembering to tell everyone about moving controls to a different location. …Read More
