planetFear has teamed up with Open Adventure to present the Endurance Series Adventure Races 2010. This series of adventure races is expected to be an assault of the senses, a real test for racers.
The planetFear Endurance Series include 5 hour, 12 hour and 24 hour adventure races. The races are traditionally comprised of mountain biking, running and a few surprises - perhaps an abseil, a canyon or even a kayak! They are open to male, female and mixed pairs. A pretty serious undertaking - but one that beginners and elite racers should be able to take on, and with the right commitment - succeed. Maps will be given out at the race and good navigation skills are essential.
Gary Westwell, Director of planetFear says - ‘As the leading adventure sports resource, planetFear are delighted to support the UK's premier adventure racing series. Our involvement with Open Adventure will enable planetFear visitors to see the best coverage of the Endurance series, with news, articles, videos and galleries. We are also stoked to be providing the official kit list for competitors, all available from our online shop'
James Thurlow, Open Adventure says - The link between Open Adventure and planetFear is an obvious choice for us - We look forward to working with planetFear who can provide information and opportunities for our racers to try out the latest kit, read reports and write blogs about the races!
