The Heb – Race on the Edge is a multi-discipline, very achievable two-day Adventure Race for Solo competitors and Pairs (i.e. teams of 2, who will stay together throughout).
Competitors will not use support vehicles (leave ’em at the ferry!). You will either move your equipment along the course yourself (i.e. you’ll be riding your bike!), or the race organisation will move equipment (e.g. bikes) between transition areas.
The course maps will be published in full before the race – no nasty surprises!
We want everyone to have a great journey through the best of the Hebrides, finish at a reasonable time, and bite off as much as they can chew (and hopefully a little bit more!). Some checkpoints will be optional, but will carry a time adjustment to be added to your overall final time if you choose to miss them.
There will be sensible cut-offs and long course/short course options to make sure everyone stays in the race, and is finished at a sensible time for food, drinks, recovery, reliving tales of your day’s adventures, and on Sunday evening, the Heb Party!.
The Heb will be achievable – everyone will have fun, adventure and challenge in one of the most amazing places Europe has to offer.
Expect to be journeying for 2 long days. However, you will stop each night and there will be camping facilities, water etc. at each overnight.
