A NOTE FROM THE ORGANISER
Hi - Im Cormac, an adventure racing enthusiast living in Carlow. I have competed in many different types of adventure races over the years and have now decided to hold one in the Southeast where I live.
The Barrow Valley and Blackstairs Mountains offer an excellent base for hosting a multi sport adventure race with some great off road biking, treking, trail running and paddling on offer and some really scenic towns and historic sites to see.
The TEAR ShamrockAR will have a similiar format to races like TEAR and DAR12 and 24 and will offer excellent preperation for races like the Beast later in the year. The race also involves a partnership with the outdoor adventure company Total Experience who have been providing top quality adventure races for many years.
For anyone that hasnt competed in an adventure race that involves map reading and navigation, this is a great opportunity to start. I promise you wont be disappointed.
If you have any question dont hesitate to get in touch and I will see you all in March!
