The team at No Fuss Events are delighted to announce today that entries for the 2017 Runduro have gone live, to get an entry click here.
Ready to do battle! In a social sort of way.
No Fuss had decided that Runduro should have a rest in 2017, however through social media and direct contacts this had been perhaps an error it seemed that there was demand. Potential participants were then asked to register an interest in the event and with over 100 registering an interest in 3 weeks, it is now all systems go for the third running of this superb event.
Runduro, was first introduced to the No Fuss portfolio in 2015. The race timed to be a part of the Fort William Mountain Festival fringe events program borrows its format from our Enduro mountain biking friends. The event consists of a 22km loop, which is split into 16 sections – 8 race stages and 8 transitions. You go as hard as you can on the race stages and take it as easy as you like (you can even stop for a cuppa) on the transitions.
Probably the thing that makes Runduro so attractive is that you can go round the whole route with your friends, even if they are faster, or slower, than you. Start the stages individually and meet up with everyone at the end, and make your way to the next race stage as a group – chat, admire the views and get yourselves psyched for the next stage!

Frazer of No Fuss says, ‘The enduro race format is very popular! We have seen its popularity grow in the mountain biking industry and we are very pleased that runners are enjoying it too. The thing about the Runduro is that there are many races within the race – you might not be the fastest runner in your group of friends, but you could win a stage or 2 for bragging rights! With 8 very different stages, everyone has a chance to be a winner!’

On completion of the Runduro participants will be treated to soup and a roll in a local hostelry where stage times can be analysed and compared. What better way to spend a Saturday? In the Outdoor Capital of the UK
The good folks at West Lothian Tri Club made a wee video of their race in 2015, you can watch it here.
