The Strathpuffer Team
After a lot of recent enquiries it's clear where thoughts are drifting to as you lie on your sunbeds so to keep you posted
we're having a meeting shortly to confirm dates for the next 'Puffer - which will be one of the two middle weekends in January - that's either 15th/16th or 22nd/23rd.
Those of you who are registered with Sportident will receive an email to say when entries open. Frankly this is the simplest way for us to deal with the volume of interested mad'uns. We've put a few enquiries on a mailing list and we will let them know too but, really, if ya wanna do it you're gonna have sign up with SportIdent anyway.....
Keep an eye out in the next few weeks to find out when we're open for entries.
Meanwhile enjoy the rest of the summer !
Puffer Lite 2010
June 26th/27th 8pm to 8am
The Puffer Lite (or Strathpuffer12) is open for entries at the Sportident-link
Only 2 hours semi-darkness and a lovely relaxed summer vibe.
We've no worries about asking marshals to marshal, (I wonder why ?) and it's great for those of you who are new to the 'Puffer family as you can check out the course before committing to the big daddy of endurance events in the winter, which you will 'cos it's fun.
Well, that's it over for another year (apart from the Puffer Lite in the summer). An amazing 450 competitors turned up, and raced an epic Puffer.
Alex Slaven won (again), and the only person to fall off in the first lap was Dougie Vipond! Looking forward to seeing the coverage on The Adventure Show, BBC2 Scotland, on Sunday 28th February. Have a look at www.tripleecho.co.uk for details.
Here's an excellent video diary from Stu Thomson....
Here's a blog from Dan Holland
