Stick it in your calendar folks. Last years course was pretty epic. I would encourage anyone to give it a go. Get on a team first... ask questions later You might love it, you might say never again but you'll always have the memories.
Stuck Now to find a team...
Somebody recruit this man fast!
Thought you would have been planning to do just that.
Make you're own team up.
Link to your race report from 2012.
i'd seen you mention it before, but not read your race report. holy %h&t. i'm not sure whether i'm scared off it for life or mad to give it a go.
Must resist messing about.
I'd love to try something like this at some stage. That and UTMB even if UTMB isn't messing
There you go MCOS, 3 left in the line up while the rest of us took a step backwards
So teams consist of 3 lads and one hoochie. If not Oryx who is wearing the wig?!
A boards team would be cool alright. Anyone seriously up for it? Who can read a map? €200 entry per person may seem like a lot but it is totally worth it
If you all do put a team together I'll help you out with anything I can.
honestly, if i wasn't targeting lost sheep i might consider it. plus i can read a map, kind of, was in top 3 individual and on the winning team for the scouts national orienteering in my youth. not sure it is up the responsibility of navigating a team around though, the pressure!!!
as i said though, LS is a focus of mine this summer so not sure this would fit.
Pending faster choices stepping up, you can pencil me in for a Boards team. I can read a map and navigate, and in the likely event of my dying during it, my carcass would feed an army.
You could use tows on all stages to even the speed across the team
