Gaelforce West 2011 – Sense the Adventure.
Congratulations to all the participants in Gaelforce West 2011, a super race on a super day. Close to 3,000 adventure athletes took part in the largest adventure race of it’s kind in the world!
Gaelforce West is a 70km trail run, kayak and road bike race.
Peter O Farrell took 1st place for the men, followed by Tom O Dowd in 2nd, and last years winner Padraig Marrey came home 3rd. Padraig said, “I have gone to the well too many times this year”, referring to being one of the eleven mountaineering enthusiasts who achieved a world-record on Croagh Patrick in July . Top UK Adventure Racer Bruce Duncan put in a great race and finished 4th in what he described as “an outstanding course”.
Emma Donlon came home 1st for the women, followed by Mary Mulchrone 2nd, and Ann Marie Egan taking the 3rd spot . All eyes now turn to Turf Guy on November 5th for the next Gaelforce Challenge.
