Small creative niche events for the discerning athlete with a sense of humour

OUR STORY

who are we?

We met through a mutual love for wild adventures and a need to train together for brutal events. The training required us to come up with creative ways of doing things that really suck.

Chris works by day as a real estate agent because it’s more profitable than being a narcotics agent. He’s the one disguised as a flowering gorse bush.

Steve, an off-duty doctor, works for the medical school trying to convert students into caring health professionals. Steve is the one that looks like Gollum and is always looking for opportunities to promote Three Peaks Mountain Race by wearing the tshirt everywhere.

who’s stupid idea was this anyway?

Another mutual love is craft beer which we mostly enjoy at the Inch Bar. Over a pint of the latest hazy many ideas were born.

Fortunately many of them died soon after.

it’s not about the money

inch events is a non-profit business. any income is to pay for expenses. We take no wages. We also like to give stuff to our favourite charities.
