Ironically, with Bubbs due in just 6 days, I don’t think I will be running too far down the trail to test it – just in case!
I reckon I will make use of both the North and South routes of the Formartine & Buchan Way, running no more than 5 miles out of Ellon in one direction before turning back, running through and then out the other side of Ellon for another 5 miles. That way at least, I should never be too far from home!
I received word yesterday that my long awaited Ultimate Direction Signature Series Peter Bakwin Adventure Vest would not be with me in time for Christmas. Gutted! I was looking forward to testing it out on some long slow runs over the Christmas period. Stock of the Signature Series vests arrived with www.out-run.co.uk via plane yesterday after being omitted from their initial delivery. Unfortunately, however, the M/L PB Adventure Vest was not amongst them and, thus, I will have to wait until late January at the earliest. Released in the US in November, the Signature Series packs are like gold dust.
www.out-run.co.uk were able to post some new images of the packs – new Peter Bakwin Adventure Vest images are shown in the gallery.
The long awaited Ultimate Direction Signature Series, including the SJ (Scott Jurek) Race Vest, the AK (Anton Krupicka) Race Vest, and the PB (Peter Bakwin) Adventure Vest are now available to buy and stocks are, by all accounts, flying out the door in the US. Limited stock is expected here in the UK in December but you had better be quick if you want to get your hands on one of these packs. Initial stock is expected to sell out very quickly. All of the packs look great but, in particular, the PB Adventure Vest appeals to me with its slightly larger capacity.
www.out-run.co.uk is Scotland’s newest trail running and ultra marathon outlet. Out-Run was set up to supply specialist kit to those taking part in trail & ultra-marathons.
Brands and items on sale have been selected on the basis of first-hand experience or as a result of recommendations from runners. The people behind Out-Run also have experience as Race Directors (GO33 Glen Ogle ultramarathon & Glenmore 24 ultramarathon) and thus have an understanding of runner’s needs.
