On Saturday 12th November two members of Navan Road Club were among the 2500 competitors to take on the Sea 2 Summit adventure race in Westport Co. Mayo.
Two events were available; Spirit (30km) and Supreme (56km) to test everyone to their limit.
The challenging Supreme adventure race is set on a grueling course consisting of a 4k run, 8k cycle, 5k run up and down Croagh Patrick followed by a 35k mountain cycle and finishing with a 4k run.
Dave Elson completed the course in a time of 3.47.16, finishing in 104th place with splits of 18:13 (run), 23:11(cycle), 1:21:27 (run 2), 1:20:38 (cycle 2) and 23:45 (run 3).
He was followed soon after by Colm Farrell , who finished in 234th position and in 4:14:31 with splits of 23:19 (run), 25:33 (cycle), 1:38:57 (run 2), 1.20:46 (cycle 2) and 25:54 (run 3).
This is a very well organised event and is now considered to be the largest adventure race in Ireland.
Well done lads.
