The Hebridean island chain of Benbecula, North Uist and South Uist will host The Heb – Race On The Edge on the weekend of 3-4 September. The new event is a 150km adventure challenge on foot, mountain bike and kayak.
Those who sign up to The Heb, competing as solos or in pairs, will find themselves on the ultimate 150km journey, made up of mainly off-road running and mountain biking with a bit of kayaking and some sections of easy navigation, through the most incredible, culture-steeped, wild, beautiful and remote landscape off the west coast of Scotland.
The Heb has been designed to suit everyone from seasoned racers and enthusiastic and fit newcomers to the world of multi-sport, to groups of friends and workmates ready to take on an active challenge at the next level.
Paul McGreal from organisers Durty Events said: “The Heb – Race On The Edge is a tough but achievable multi-sport challenge, staged in the ultimate outdoor playground of the Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland. This action packed adventure will be extremely easy to take part in. With an overnight stay in a single location on day one, race logistics sorted by the event team and time adjusted route, checkpoint and navigation options to suit all skill and fitness levels we have placed the emphasis firmly on participation, enjoyment and fun for all.
