Dirty Dozen - Trail Run (5 July)
Variety is the spice of a wicked weekend away!
The Dirty Weekend is another first for adventure innovators Detail Events. Detail are the creators of the Rat Race, the hugely successful urban Adventure Series. This is a physical and mental adventure challenge where teams navigate their way round an adventure course set for them in the city and only revealed hours before they begin. They run, bike, abseil, climb kayak and navigate the streets, structures, waterways and urban landscape and thousands are now signing up for Rat Races nationwide. Since its inception in Edinburgh in 2004, the Rat Race has grown to include six cities throughout the UK in 2008 plus international dates. However, Dirty Weekend will involve far fewer skyscrapers and much more scenery and it will bring Detail's particular flair for these dramatic events to the wilds of the Scottish Borders this summer.
