This is Kate’s race report from #BeastofBallyhoura. Enjoy…
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.
Mike has just confirmed that Team #TriHarder are registered for the 2015 Beast of Ballyhoura!! 😀
Time to get a move on with the training 😀
There just aren’t enough smilies for this post!!!:D 😀
