adidas TERREX swift | 2nd to 4th June 2012
To fill the gap between the adidas TERREX Coast to Coast and the Sting in Stirling events, Open Adventure introduces the adidas TERREX swift, a two day expedition style event for teams of 4.
This one is ideal for racers planning to make their first foray into non-stop expedition style racing or as part of your training plan for something a little longer like the Sting in Stirling.
The area we are looking at to host the race is particularly suited to this style of event being challenging, yet achievable for first timers.
There'll be the usual mix of trekking, mountain biking and paddling plus that little extra spice which Open Adventure is renowned for.
