  • Happy finishers at Bowhill

    Part of a popular series of low-key, back-to-basics off-road duathlons in the Scottish Borders. Originally held at Glentress Forest, the series moved, with great success, to a new home at the fantastic Bowhill Estate near Selkirk in 2012. What better way to motivate your training over the dark winter months, test your progress, or simply have some muddy, wet and snowy fun! Further (longer) race on Sun 5 March. 

    Sun, 12/02/2017 - 12:00 to 15:00
  • The Mighty Deerstalker

    A wet, muddy and now infamous romp through the Borders countryside, starting and finishing at lovely Traquair House. Runners can choose from the 5km route (actually quite a bit longer), or the full-on 10km route (actually A LOT longer, much of it in darkness). Dressing up is crucial – expect plenty of tweed, fake antlers and deerstalker hats – while the routes feature a range of fiendish obstacles. For those with any juice left in the tank, the after party (The Mighty Beerstalker) is pretty good too. 

    Sat, 11/03/2017 - 14:00 to 23:00
  • Come and enjoy a real Tweed Valley adventure riding some of the best enduro tracks anywhere in the UK. The trails used will be kept under wraps until the event, but the stages will provide an awesome day out – and something a wee bit different. Thanks to the weather, the last two years’ adventures turned out a bit more adventurous than anticipated, so in 2017 expect dust and wall to wall sunshine. Or not.
