Its that time of the year again and this year The Beast is hosting the finals of the Adventure Racing European Series. With just over 50 teams taking part it will be a milestone on the calendar for most taking part over the three non stop days of racing.
I was introduced to this race in 2010 and ignorance is bliss. I met my team just a week before the race and was told yes you will be fine for 24 hours of adventure racing.( they were desperate women in adventure racing are scarce!!!) I did however thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we finished a respectable 4th.
Thankfully I have retired from this race but will wish all well and my contribution instead is tankards for the winning Irish team.
The competition will be hot with top teams travelling from all over Europe and our top Irish teams will have a battle to stay with them.
Best of Luck to all men and women taking part and you can keep an eye on how all teams are performing on The Beast website
