Bring a friend and let us thank you!
The only thing we love more than Adventure Racing is new Adventure Racers! So, to all readers who've taken part in one of our previous events (i.e. since May 2015), we would like to offer you a 50% discount off the full price entry fee of an event of your choice if you bring along someone new to one of our events. This offer will last up to, and including, Thursley Adventure Race which is on 5th February.

Once they've entered their event, just let me know by email, and I'll give you a discount code or arrange a cash refund. How simple is that? The only condition is that they cannot have taken part in one of our previous events.  This deal is only available up to the day before the event and with prior email correspondence.

And if they're completely new to navigation and Adventure Racing, no problem! They can sign up for one of my Navigation Courses (click here)
Mickleham Adventure Race 
Mickleham is the second event in our WINTER SERIES, and marks the first event of 2017. We're hoping for a nice crisp day, with loads of sunshine, and online entry is already open  (read more...

Dates for the next 12 months

We've been really busy trying to sort out dates for the foreseeable future, and they are now on our Events Page, so get them in your diary. The venues are proving a bit more difficult to book, and we'll add them to the website as details are finalised.

A number of you have suggested we should head into Kent and the North Downs, and we are actively pursuing these options, so watch this space!

Adam's Adventures

November saw me run round all the Snowdogs by the sea statues in Brighton. The distance was just over a marathon and the time taken to find them all was 6 hours.  A fun day out and a chance to test my navigation!

A Run Idea ...

We've already had some very positive responses to the idea of putting on some night events during the late Autumn - early Spring months (as mentioned in last month's Navigator). The responses include adding a Canicross option, which is a really good idea. This builds on an idea I've been mulling over: one that involves putting on a number of signed 10k runs over the next few months. We'd use reflective arrows, so you will need to run with a head torch.  It looks as though our first event will be trialled in the Hurtwood on Saturday 11th February 2017. Watch the Tri-Adventure website - Night Runner for more details. The typical format could be something like:
  • Saturday evening
  • Registration at 16.00 
  • Briefing followed by event start at 17.30 (medal for all participants)
  • Prize Giving at 20.30
What do you think? Is this something you'd be interested in taking part in? I really would welcome as much feedback as possible, so do please email me me your thoughts.

Albury Adventure Race - 4 December

The beautiful, crisp, winter's day we had hoped for after Bentley Copse in November duly materialised. We had another great turnout, with almost 80 racers setting off at 10am in beautiful sunshine. I even managed to get one of my drones up to film the start (read more..).
Interested, but no MTB?

No problem!  We’ve teamed up with B1KE, who will deliver good quality Mountain Bikes to the venue for £30.  So, no excuses …   If you need a bike for one of our events, just let me know. CONTACT US.  More information about the hire details can be found here.

Navigation Skills Training
Improve your Navigation skills and start collecting even more Check Points by attending one of my one day Navigation Courses.  I usually run them the day before a Tri-Adventure event with the next course on Saturday 7th January, and I am also happy to run these courses for groups of 1-8, on a day to suit you, so just email me if you are interested. The feedback from those attending is excellent, and the application of the new knowledge is clearly evident the following day, as the participants tackle their maps with skill and confidence  CONTACT US.

Why not make an Adventure Race part of your Stag or Hen do?

Are you, or any of your friends, planning a Stag or a Hen do?  Why not build a day in the Surrey Hills/London/South East into your programme of activities, whilst still leaving plenty of time for evening celebrations?  I can tailor a day to suit all tastes, whether it's off road running, MTB, navigation, climbing, abseiling, kayaking, obstacles, and so on.  The list is endless...    Just get in touch.  CONTACT US
Shop 'til you drop!'
We've got some great items in our Shop. So, why not treat yourself to a hoodie, high quality cycling top or T-Shirt?
Or what about a water bottle, neck warmer, or map board?  

I also have a BikeBoxAlan for hire.

And finally ... I need your help!
Some of you will have seen me using a drone to do some aerial filming at Tilford and Albury, and I took the image above.  That's something else I do - I have an aerial filming and photography business, and I am fully qualified to operate commercially, with CAA approval and full insurance cover.

You can see my work and the vast range of applications that are suitable for drones on our website  Our work is of stunning quality, and costs a fraction of what a helicopter shoot would cost.

Well, that's it for this month.  I look forward to seeing you at  Mickleham in January, and don't forget to email me your thoughts on the Night Events above.

In the meantime, I'd like to wish you all a very happy Christmas, and an active, Tri-Adventure filled, 2017!

Yours in Adventuring
