ever Adventure Race. Mark Eastham Adventure Events Coordinator at The
Children’s Centre said: "The close proximity of the steep valleys, woodland
and remote mountainous areas provide the perfect environment for Adventure
Racing. This event will be a consist of
three demanding stages: a 6km trail run, 10km Mountain biking and a further
3.5km trail run, and can be entered as an individual or a team. The racing is
all off-road so the going can get tough: but that’s
what Adventure Racing is all about."
the Sun – 19 June 2010
Race the Sun is a relay race like no other. The
task is simple: starting at sun rise, your team must complete a lap of the
dramatic 100 mile Island coastal footpath before the sun sets. Split into 10
demanding sections, the course follows the Raad ny Foillan, a stunning coastal
footpath with significant height gain. You will journey along impressive sandy
beaches, picturesque glens, estuaries and exposed cliff tops. Requiring
strength, stamina and agility, it’s definitely not for the faint-hearted. Teams
can be made up of a maximum of 10 competitors.
