SleepMonsters Adventure Racing Reports – Huairasinchi – Team Irish AR Introduces Their Team

I noticed the markings on the floor on Twitter earlier and wondered what it was all about.

Simple system to ensure all the mandatory kit is present and packed!

Best of luck to Avril & the boys in Equador. We’ll be following excitedly.

Who are Team #TriHarder AR?

Back in January 2014 a call went out on the Traithlon / Duathlon / Adventure Racing forum on to put together a team in order to take on the Beast of Ballyhoura Adventure Race to be held in August 2014.

The organiser and defacto team Captain was to be Michael Casey O’Shea  who had a previous encounter with the Beast in 2012 and very quickly, along with Kate Harrison, Warren Swords and myself, Sean Conroy, Team #TriHarder was born.

We trained and tackled the Beast in 2014 and a love for #AdventureRacing blossomed. There are plenty of accounts both here on my own blog on the home page and in various Training Logs both privately held and publicly on of our adventures (I will link them in here).

What remains is a plan to grow the team through winter & Spring 2015 ready for a 3 day assault on the Beast in August 2015 and who knows where we go from there? Maybe #ITERA2016 which is a 5 day expedition event to be held in Ireland. Who knows?

Stay tuned…..
