Much Better Events and Races 2017
Every weekend should hold some kind of adventure, challenge and sense of achievement, not just one or two 'big' weekends away. That's why we've partnered with a collection of brilliant events throughout the UK this year, from 5k fun runs, to some of the toughest adventure and obstacle races on the planet.
We'll be at many of these races ourselves, and are giving prizes and voucher codes for entrants too – what more incentive do you need?
So browse the calendar, pick an event or two, and we'll see you there!
