Latest News from Human Race Events!


The Asics Off Road Series is in full swing...

The Asics Off Road Race Series is well underway with three events having taken place and two to go in the next few weeks. Next up is TuffMan this very weekend, and its still not too late to sign up!

Every event in the series features an off road duathlon and a trail run meaning there is something for everyone looking to get fit this winter. After TuffMan on 4th February comes TrailMan, the new addition on 10th March.

TrailMan takes place in the stunning location of Eridge Park close to Royal Tunbridge Wells and takes competitors on undulating trails and tracks through beautiful scenery - though they will mostly be preoccupied with the hills and mud rather than their beautiful surroundings!

If you want a preview of exactly what the off-road series is all about head over to www.facebook.com/humanraceevents and check out the photo gallery. There are loads of great pictures that will really give you a feel of what the events are all about...

Kinetica sign up as sponsor of the Spring BallBuster

Kinetica have signed on as title sponsor of the Spring BallBuster on Saturday 3rd March and will be on hand at the race to give away free samples of their 100% Recovery products. Which will be much needed after completing one of the toughest duathlons in the UK.

The Spring BallBuster is a duathlon taking place on part of the Olympic 2012 Road Cycling route at Box Hill in Surrey. Competitors take on lap after lap of the infamous Box Hill loop to complete an eight mile run followed by a twenty four mile cycle and a final eight mile run.

You can get more info on the Kinetica Spring BallBuster and enter the event here.

Lucozade Ambassador and world 5,000m champion Mo Farah uses Lucozade Sport Lite to succeed, ďLike me, you may want to get the most out of your training and competition so itís important that you replace the fluids lost through sweat to help you keep going. I drink Lucozade Sport Lite to help me as it has the salts and electrolytes my body needs to get me through to the finish line .Ē said Mo.

Itís important for runners, especially those running up to an hour, to hydrate before, during and after and with only 50 calories you wonít be taking on more than you burn.
