What's your team's focus?
Adventure Racing is our core sport but we also do trail races, mountain bike races and orienteering events.

What is the strangest thing that has happened to (or within) your team?
As we race for long periods of time with little or no sleep we regularly experience hallucinations and we have all seen many weird and wonderful things—we refer to it as sleepmonsters.

Does the team have a claim to fame?
4 out of 5 of our male squad members really lack any head hair and we are also know for our fairly rampant appetites.

Do you promote an annual race?
We are always pushing all UK adventure races, and we often help plan the adventures of our good friend James Thurlow from Open Adventure (www.openadventure.com).

Any notable recent results?
We have been British Adventure Racing Champions since 2005. We were World Adventure Racing Champions in 2009 and came 3rd in 2013. We are current European Adventure Racing Champions. We have also won the Patagonia Expedition Race in Chile 5 the last 5 years in a row.

Anything else we should know about the team?
We love the sport of adventure racing!
