As a team, we’ve been kinda quite for the past while. Since ITERA anyway, which seems like a far distant memory at this stage.
Individually we have all been flat out busy with life. Kate is the only TriHarderAR trooper who has managed to find that Work / Life / AR balance and is doing a mighty job of flying the colours around the world!
Kate raced Expedition Africa earlier this summer with the Raidlight Tumbleweeds and provided us with some thrilling dot watching. Plans are afoot for another Expedition race this Autumn too, so we have to catch up with her on the plans for that one.
The boys have been busy with work and life. Between new arrivals, building business opportunities, studying (congrats to Mike on his results), relocating (Sean in USA) there has not been a whole lot of time or opportunity to do any training let alone racing as a team in 2017. It looks like the season will end without a complete Team #TriHarderAR appearance at any of the adventure races including one of our favourites The Beast where it all started for us.
We’re still here, still loving the sport and with tons of ambitions ahead of us for future races. We’re not ready to #GoDark just yet 😀
Where to start?
Back a few month ago when ITERA was off the cards I struggled to find something to focus on and motivate myself to train so I stumbled across the 1st running of the Sligo Trail Ultra a 50mile track from West to East through Sligo.
Grand so, entered and started running again.Continue reading
Saturday 20 February
Event: Causeway Coast Adventure Race, Round 2 in Boyle Co. Roscommon – 5 hours, MTB, Trekking, Orienteering, Kayak and Special Tasks in teams of 2. Collect as many controls as you can. Penalties for roads off limits and every minute over 5 hours.
What does being part of a Team mean?
Here’s how we at #TriHarderAR like to look at it:
Well, that was an epic event!
All easy looking back now and appreciating the event for what it was, it was not so pretty when you were in the thick of it that’s for sure!!!
None of us had a clue about rogaine or the art of rogaining when we first heard about it. It was an event that popped up on my Facebook timeline at one stage and I was suitably intrigued enough to read more. Setanta Orienteers were set about hosting the Irish Rogaine Championships in the Wicklow mountains. There was enough mystery about the proposed area of coverage and starting point to appeal to our collective adventure spirits and in no time at all the 24hr rogaine was to be a backbone navigation ‘training’ event for our Beast preparations.
