Lakeside fury
« on: February 02, 2012 »

Guys i need a partner for CCAR's lakeside fury. My usual partner in crime is busy.

I'll be happy to finish the race and have a laugh along the way, not to serious as long as we don't come last ;D

Its in Craigavon and i  live 5 mins from the starting point, so i know the area really well.

Any takers?

Craigavon area on Saturday 25th February 2012.

Skills needed: running/walking, mountain biking/cycling, orienteering, kayaking, a sense of humour and a dry change of clothes for after ;-)

You won't regret doing it and once you do one you will be back for more.

Don't run just walk it. Make up the time on the bike or kayak. I see teams sprinting off the line and not reading the map and teams that take it easy and read the map pass them by.  We have got some great results from races that the map reading and shortcuts meant we could take it easy.

Doesn't mater if your the fastest team out there. If your going the wrong way your just getting further away from the finish faster ;-)

Cool there seems to be a bit of interest. We could maybe make a couple of teams.

Mike and Liam let me know if you can do it and we'll try and rope some else in.
