Hey !!! 😜
What a amazing two days of running for us all! My back 2 back trail event went great!
1st day taking in 4 summits with many hills ( highest point 657meters ) & lots of lovely tracks & trails from point to point & a great challenge for those one day'rs let along the 2nd day'rs!
Super well done to you all! Sunny but not to warm & little clouds covering us up on our ways Saturday a good day on the trails for all really! A super good social! & take out on each summit! Some got bee stung from the ( shay Elliot ) bees which I don't think should be resting up on a fire road that 1000's of people pass everyday!! But anyhow we moved on & hope your all feeling better today!
So over all a great day on amazing trails picked & routed out by JuJu & everyone seemed to enjoys!
After a nice meal / beers at Glendalough Hotel Saturday night doe Nic's birthday & a lovely shoe cake everything went good! For some went to bed in rest for Sunday's runs & others stayed out later to party! 🍻 well it was Nic's b day!!!!!! But feeling super strong today for day two on my ( juju ) two day trail run! Today's route started @ 10am with only 2 summits but much tougher hills!
We had nice 2&half km flat warm up then the hills starts to Wicklow gap!😜and from here was tough going to Tonelagee summit 818meters & the over to Scarr summit & then the real down hill fun starts for most of us!!!
Again an all over great planned weekend ( sorry for those that didn't make it ) always next time... But for those that did well done with your nearly 2000 meters of climbing with 54km running & just over 8hours of running or power hiking !
What ever you did super well done!
Weather played a good part for us this weekend ! & just as we got back on Sunday the sky looked dark & the thunder done its thing !!! We were back in hotel just in time ( even tho juju loves running in that kind of weather )😜
