Some of the crew having fun at Ballyhoura MTB trails recently.
Back in January 2014 a call went out on the Traithlon / Duathlon / Adventure Racing forum on Boards.ie 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 Boards.ie 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?
