The Irish 24 hour Rogaine takes place this weekend. For the last two years, Andrew McCarthy and I have teamed up for this race. And for the last two years, we have won the event outright.
However this year, neither of us could compete. And so, with much regret, we handed back the perpetual cup to the organisers, Setanta Orienteers.
It would have been a fun event. The race start is close to Kippure and uses the brand new Dublin Mountains map. The last I heard, 19 teams were entered in the 24 hour and a similar number in the 6 hour sprint. Hope you get good weather for it – the last two years, we definitely didn’t!
