Sandblasted… run and ride now for 2018

Who knew racing your bike down a beach and back (with of course some trails too) would be so much fun!  So much so we feel that only offering this event to those with bikes would be unjust.

In 2018 Sandblasted returns and the evening before will now also host the Sandblasted 10k run … with free camping you can now run, camp (beer), ride all on the same weekend.

After a hugely successful (if a little wet) edition in 2017 Focal Events once again have been instructed to make the fun on Arran happen again.

Again we will be back on our favourite island Arran, now known to many as ‘Little California’ ;). The format remains the same with a gravel focussed loop taking in the Arrans’ finest trails with 4 timed sections. Saturday evening will see live awards, live music and a DJ. Of course, we will again working with some great local businesses and folk who make the weekend truly special.

We literally cannot wait for July 14th 2018!

The Distance, a new venue with fresh challenges

The Distance debuted in 2017 and on June 10th brought together some adventurous souls to sample the delights of Dumfries and Galloway.  Much fun was had by all though the weather tried to literally put a dampener on us.

In 2018 to keep the spirit of adventure that is The Distance we are shifting to a new venue.  This new venue will offer a host of new challenging routes and a fresh overnight location.  Not only that but we see a host of new brands supporting the event.

All will be revealed soon so keep checking in to the event website, https://www.thedistance.cc, for updates.
