In the 4th week of May 2012 V12 Outdoor will be going head to head with Outside in a race along the Cuillin Ridge in Skye as part of a Mammut test promotion. There will be a team of two competing from each of the two stores. At V12 it will be Jimmy big guns and Gareth not so big guns!
In the spirit of the occasion we are busy putting together some kit we have found while stock taking and clearing old displays to make up a descent prize for someone, it will be in excess of £1500 in value. This we are going to give to the person that comes closest to predicting Jim and Gareth's time over the ridge. There are two ways to enter: you can either 'like' our facebook page:
which will be posting regular updates as we near the occasion and be giving you more insight into the team, training and suchlike so you can hopefully make a more accurate guess. With luck we will have updates on the day too! Alternatively you need to be signed up to our newsletter, in other words an existing customer who has logged in and chosen to take the newsletter, or you can sign up and accept the newsletter here if you are not already a customer.: https://www.v12outdoor.com/catalog/create_account.php?

with the heading 'Cuillin Race Prize'. You must include your full name and the estimated time in the E-mail. Multiple entries are allowed but it will be the last entry before the competition closes that will be taken as your final entry, this gives you the opportunity to take account of the weather, team condition and morale!
