6 weeks, 2000 miles and 7 potential venues visited across the UK. We conclude Project ASX with three amazing venues approved for 2015.
Starting in Mid-Wales, the #supbikerun team armed with their trusty ASX worked their way around the UK in search of stunning venues to host #supbikerun events in 2015.
It’s not until you undertake a journey such as this that you truly understand and witness just how amazing and beautiful this little island is we live on. The geography and geology of the UK really is quite epic in places and it’s these special pockets of natural delight that we have handpicked just for you.
Our theme for 2015 is National Parks. Each event will either be staged within or on the borders of a National Park and area of outstanding beauty. Each venue provides you with a varied challenge from the lake you will SUP on to the tracks and trails you will bike and run on. And whilst the course distances will remain the same (3K SUP 30K MTB 5K RUN) no two venues will be the same. Each venue provides a different backdrop with stunning scenery and challenges around every corner.
Before undertaking this journey, we knew we had to arm ourselves with the right vehicle. The spec was simple. We needed something big enough to carry 2 SUP boards, 2 bikes and the film crew. Something that was comfortable and quick and most importantly a vehicle that behaves as well off-road as on the road.
Introducing the Mitsubishi ASX. The ASX met all our expectations and at times totally blew our minds with it’s performance and ability off-road. For many of the venues we visited we were fortunate to have rangers with us to show us the best tracks and trails to explore. Yet despite this expert guidance, it was the ASX that allowed us to get really stuck in and discover some truly breathtaking areas. Thanks to our automotive partner Mitsubishi, each of our events in 2015 will have remote marshals each armed with an ASX to ensure adequate safety and cover within the most remote parts of both our MTB and trail run courses.
2015 will see three events run across the UK in Spring, Summer and Autumn. The venues will be announced with full details when tickets go on-sale Saturday 10th January.
Spring – May 17th
Summer – July 12th
Autumn – Sept 20th
