Welcome to No Fuss Events.

What is No Fuss Events, you say? Basically we love the outdoors. We love events and the fun, camaraderie and craic that goes with them. We have tried to strip back some of the rules and regulations involved with sport that can be a wee bit off putting at times. By paying attention to what our customers say and by running events in a friendly and fun manner we attracted almost 3000 participants in 2014.

No Fuss Events burst onto the mountain biking events scene in 2005 with 10 Under the Ben, a 10 hour XC marathon race that is still the company’s flagship event. For the No Fuss 10th Anniversary in 2014, 10 Under attracted over 1200 riders to the World Championship trails at Nevis Range.
Since 2007 the No Fuss team have also been putting triathletes through their paces with the Big Ben Nevis Triathlon and the Highland Warrior, both of which are Middle Distance tris. The Big Ben is being co-organised this year with Kelsey Media, the team behind sports publications such as Outdoor Fitness and Running Fitness. The Highland Warrior 2015 is moving to a brand new location, taking with it, its ‘wee shorter brother’, The Wee Battler! Both events will take place in the water and on the trails and roads of stunning Glencoe Village, Ballachuilish and Kinlochleven.

Being based in the OCUK, we have a massive playground to put to use, and we do! The Tour de Ben Nevis is a 65km MTB circumnavigation of Ben Nevis and brand new for this year, there is the Marathon de Ben Nevis, which is one for the ultra-runners. We also like to do stuff for the roadies, with the Lord of the Lochs Sportive in September.
Ever the innovator, in February 2015, No Fuss invented a totally unique running event – the Runduro. The format, which is based on enduro, the biggest thing to hit mountain biking in the last few years, is so far unique to Fort William! The event consists of a running loop of around 20km, which is then spilt up into race ‘stages’ and transition ‘stages’. On the race stages, which can be a hill climb, a steep descent or perhaps a flat out sprint, you go as fast as their legs can carry them. On the transitions, you take your time, catch up with your mates and discuss the stage. At the end you get instant results to compare to your running buddies. The event was so popular, No Fuss have already organised Runduro 2, which will take place at Nevis Range the day after 10 Under the Ben.
Talking of MTB Enduro, if that’s your thing you should also have a look at the POC Scottish Enduro Series. We organise that too………

So if you’re planning a trip to the OCUK, have a look at No Fuss Events and see if you can join in at one of the brilliant events on offer in the area. If you’re not planning a trip to the OCUK, take a look anyway and we might just change your mind!
