Outsider Events - What We're About

The Squad.jpg

Outsider Events is an Edinburgh based events company, creating events and outdoor experiences that we'd like to attend ourselves. 

Focussing primarily on cycling and trail running events, we strongly believe there's so much more to an event than pinning on a number, giving it hell for leather (though there are definitely times for this) and heading home.


We aim to look beyond the finish line and incorporate an innovative approach to our event management that includes not only the racer but spectators, friends and family too. 

Meet The Team 

Cameron Balfour - Director

Cameron's background is in bike racing. Having competed in Road and Cross Country mountain biking, he was ultimately selected for the British Olympic Talent Team at age group level. 

After graduating from university with a degree in Events Management and a heightened love of beer, Cameron drifted from the competitive world of cycling to lead bike tours and adventure trips around the Mediterranean, Caribbean and Iceland.


Combining these experiences, Cameron created Outsider Events from a genuine love of being in the outdoors, bringing people together and leaving them with a smile on their face.  

Hamish Carrick - Trip Leader


Hamish also comes from a bike racing background blended with a passion for cycle touring. A guy with a thirst for adventure, Hamish recently completed the Three Peaks challenge (Snowdon, Scafell Pike + Ben Nevis) riding between each mountain in under 48hrs.


Outside of the bike, Hamish is well versed in many other of outdoor activities that feature in our multi-day trips. 

Calum Mcvicar - Photographer


Calum is our main man behind the lens. The two places Calum feels most at home are with his camera or up a mountain - fortunately these are two he can combine capturing the moments with Outsider Events.
