With Cork suffering the worst of the effects from hurricane Ophelia, there was a big doubt over SCAR actually going ahead this year. An email from the organisers after the storm indicated that roads were blocked, 50+ trees down and a real danger that, if held on the original date, more trees or debris from [...]

Moxie Adventure Race – Race Review

Last weekend, at Moxie, I took the plunge in the world of the expert distance races with the big hitters of adventure racing. Well it's safe to say I wont be jostling for podium positions there. This route was called the Moxie Pro (53km route) and it lived up to the billing... Moxie noun [...]

With days to go, the nerves are beginning to tingle and the planning has started. Bike checks, weather checks, water and carb loading...Check out this handy guide... Usually we would get the event organizers to do a quick preview but this time we got a past competitor and friend of Kayathlon.ie, Margaret Erwin if she could break the "sport" [...]

Today, I am the Storm!

By | June 30th, 2017|Categories: Motivation|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

3 weeks ago I took on DAR Dingle. I had a point to prove at this race as last year it ate me up and spat me out. I went into that race with zero training done and was just back from a 6 week chest infection. So the gauntlet was put down and I [...]

The Inside Track – Gaelforce West

By | June 17th, 2017|Categories: Race Preview|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Alas the iconic Gaelforce West is almost upon us. For some, this is one of the first adventure races they have taken part in. Certainly one of the most demanding. A course that pulls no punches. Measured at an impressive 67km, which takes in, amongst other things, a scramble up Croagh Patrick, many consider this not a race [...]

A while back Kayathlon.ie in conjunction with Quest held a competition for a free entry to Quest Glendalough. The winner was chosen at random. The winner was a guy called Dave Gowan. Not only did Dave win the draw, he won the blooming race too. After the dust settled, I spoke to Dave and well, [...]

It's Q minus 4 days. All roads truly lead to the Kingdom of Kerry this weekend. And in particular Killarney. At this stage you're probably dissecting the race, stage by stage, hill by hill, from energy gels to water intake, every possible variable right up to the after party. Should I be carb loading. How [...]
