Hightailing it to Scotland – ITERA 2021

Our entry is in.

It will be 5 years since the team last raced together at ITERA 2016.

5 years since Mike’s serious injury, yet we still finished the race.

5 years since we belly laughed, cried and stormed around the West of Ireland

5 years older. Bigger kids, travel, jobs changes, responsibilities. Life!!

We can’t wait!!

Race Details

ITERA Race Details - Mountain Biking

The event will be a 5 day nonstop adventure race for mixed sex teams of 4. Including running / trekking, mountain biking and kayaking. The event will run from the 14th – 21st August 2021.

We have designed a race format and course that will allow all the teams to finish (although to be fair that did thwart us in 2019). The race will be achievable yet challenging to all levels. We are not planning to design the hardest adventure race ever, in fact quite the opposite; we want it to be fun, interesting and an accessible event. Every night we will provide access to warm and dry shelter.

What’s included

An amazing journey through Scotland!
