Gosh – it seems like only yesterday that we decided to try our hand at organising some events in the areas we know and love so well.
It was, in fact, exactly 12 months ago – while reviewing 2017 and looking ahead to 2018 – we had a good year with our outdoor adventure business Door 2 Door Adventures but wanted to have more control over our work / life balance.
Instead of constantly waiting and hoping someone would want us to organise a bespoke adventure day for them – we wanted to plan ahead and decide when events would be and work together with friends to make them happen.
We achieved this and can now look back on an amazing year which we –
- started Top Dog Events Limited
- set up 3 x 100 mile sportives
- helped facilitate a run as part of a local gala
- organised our initial trail running event
- made some amazing new friends
- cancelled a sportive due to rider safety concerns
- became a bona fide events company
We got some great feedback from participants and helpers in our first years events and have learnt sooooo very much – thank you all 🙂
We are putting the lessons into action by planning 3 x shorter sportives, with an annual 100+ mile classic ride – cheaper entry fees along with, optional extras to purchase like medals, photos and clothing, as well as a series of trail runs of various distances.
So grab your place on an event or two in our January sale, get out training and we look forward to meeting you in 2019.
