What is Adventure Racing? Although it can be similar to a Triathlon or a marathon, there is one main difference. Adventure racing is an adventure. It is not for the faint hearted, it’s not for the straight even roads, it’s not for the swimming pools, it’s for the adventure. It’s outdoors, it’s in the sea, it’s in the rain, muck, sweat and tears. It is for the sense of accomplishment that you ran an adventure and you made it.
This would be a great race for first-timers, with the perfect course for all levels of fitness to get involved either individually or as part of a relay team. It is open to anyone with a reasonable level of fitness and involves running, kayaking and cycling someof the most breathtaking scenery in the world. The route is Carrigaline to Fountainstown to Carrigaline.
The event will take place on Saturday 26th September at 10am. You can register as an individual or a relay team of three.
