Race Report – Boyne Adventure Race ’19 by David Lowe

2019 is the first year that I haven’t played GAA in over 20 years and to say I was at a loose end was an under-statement!! I had it in my mind at the start of the year to go running, what or where I was not sure but I decided I would target a [...]

Race Report – Race2Glory ’19 (Sport)

Race Report – Quest Glendalough ’19 (Sport)

Glendalough, like for so many others, it's where it all began for me. It was here back in 2016 when an out of shape ex GAA player first cut his teeth into Adventure Racing not realizing what would happen next. It had been 6 months to the day since I last raced and that was [...]

Race Report – Quest Glendalough ’19 (Expert)

On the face of it the 59km Expert course doesn’t seem overly daunting, there are longer courses out there on the Adventure Racing calendar, but don’t be fooled, this is one of the toughest course you will take on...8 cramp inducing stages, 1,000m of climbing over 40k cycling, 800m elevation gain on 4 quad burning [...]
