We’ve quite obviously got a host of good events for you! That’s one of our main reasons for being here! There is some fantastic events lined up and in the pre-planning and planning stages. What is “pre-planning”? They are just a good idea the team have had whilst out on the trails. It may be scribbled on the back of an envelope somewhere. They used to get written on beer mats, but lockdown closed the pubs!
Anyway, off on a tangent there like a muddy pathway slipping off the main drag.
Some amazing events already listed below, but we’ve more to add to that. When Alex came from TRB he also brought with him the “awesome”* South By Five series, and the Trossachs Trail Marathon. More details about them will be added once available. Why not sign up to our newsletter to hear about them first?
