Raring to go at Achill Roar Adventure Race

I was on the hunt for points last weekend at Outfront’s Achill Roar Adventure Race. It was race number five out of the nine race National Adventure Race Series, with four races in total to count. I already had two wins and a second place in the bag from three races this year, so I … Continue reading Raring to go at Achill Roar Adventure Race

Going Green at Gaelforce West Adventure Race 2014

The alarm went off at 4am. I felt sick. Not just the normal “sick with nerves before a race”. It was a nauseous feeling, a feeling that something wasn’t completely right with the body.

The first thing I had to decide was what I wanted to be fit for. Much as I love mountain running, I've found it easier … Continue reading Back to Proper Training

3rd place at Koh Samui Adventure Race, Thailand

Last weekend’s entertainment was an adventure race in Thailand. Most would be insanely jealous. But believe me, racing in the heat and dust, with dehydration and sunburn dragging you down and around over the 6 hour course is not as fun as it may seem. The adventure race took place in Koh Samui, a romantic … Continue reading 3rd place at Koh Samui Adventure Race, Thailand
