Committed, we should be
I have signed up, along with a couple of friends and colleagues from work, to do Race 1 at this event in April. Although it’s only an 8 mile race (13Km) it does include 900m of climb. I’ve worked out that is equivalent to doing 4 HHRa on the trot. This may be a challenge too far. We are all amateurs, never run in an event like this before and other than Mark, haven’t done any endurance events at all. Mark plays rugby for Ponteland RFC and trains most days of the week.
There is a facebook group called iROC Adventure Race Weekend and looking at the other competitors we are going to be last of that there is no doubt. Never mind it’s the taking part that counts isn’t it?
