In Pursuit of Booze [Logical Excuses for Missing Work]

In early May 2009 traveled to the Scottish Highlands to follow the Drambuie Pursuit, a one-of-a-kind, two-day, nine-stage adventure race open to teams of amateur athletes from around the world. Hundreds of weekend warriors applied, but only 13 four-person teams made the cut. Among the racers were dot-com desk jockeys, landscapers, and even an online poker player (but not yours truly, except for the mountain climb stage. I was too busy sampling the fermented Highland wares and gawking at amazing old castles). There were also hard-core adventure racers ready for serious battle. Some of them weren’t exactly prepared for the experience that ensued. But that didn’t stop them from going all out—and having a great time. We did, too. Watch and enjoy!

Feel like you’ve got what it takes? Applications are being accepted now. If you win, it’s an all-expenses paid trip to Scotland (and back, unless it kills you, and there are sections that just might) and a chance to rub shoulders with the likes of Seann William Scott, a.k.a. Stiffler, last year’s celebrity contestant.
