Fans of urban adventure races have only until New Year's Day to take advantage of some early bird prices from some of the UK's most challenging endurance events. Rat Race Adventure Sports is hosting a range of challenges throughout the UK in 2012 and competitors can save themselves some significant sums if they enter before midnight on Sunday January 1.
First up are the Notorious Night Runs over 10k and 5k in locations in North England, South England, Midlands and Scotland in March. In September, they stage the Scotland Coast to Coast which includes running, off-road cycling, road cycling and kayaking.
Then in October and November, they will host the Men's Health Survival of the Fittest events over courses of approximately 10k taking on some strength-sapping obstacles in Edinburgh, Cardiff, London and Nottingham.
Entrants can save up to £20 by making an early entry. For more information on all Rat Race events, see: www.ratrace.com/events
