Partner needed for Rogaine Ireland 24hr (23/24 June)

Lisa de SpevilleApr 24, 4:40pmHi runners,

I have the fortune of being in Ireland in June and I'd like to do the Rogaine Ireland 24hr on the weekend of 23/24 June - I just need a partner. Male or female.

By way of reference, I'm an orienteer, adventure racer and ultra trail runner.

I've done all but one (I was away, running a 5-day race in India) of the annual 8hr rogaines that we've had here in South Africa since the discipline started here in about 2003. I've often done the rogaine in a women's pair and we've won every time (granted, there isn't a lot of competition). I also took part in the World Rogaine Champs in Estonia in 2008 (goodness, big mistake made! aaarrrggghhh!).

On the road I'm a solid 5:00 - 6:00 min/km over 21km. I'm no a racing snake; just steady and consistant regardless of distance - on road or off road. I've done many trail ultras, stage races and adventure races over the past 13 years.

I'm a solid orienteer and adventure racing navigator.

For this rogaine my objective is to have a good run (I embrace walking, especially uphill!), minimise errors and to feel satisfied afterwards with our route choice. I'm competitive but also pretty easy going.

If you'd like to be my partner, please drop me an email. You don't have to be an orienteer/navigator; I've got that sorted. If you are, great. In rogaining, two heads can be better than one ;)

warm wishes,
