Harold describes Shore2 Summit as “a true adventure-race paradise, with the snow-topped Sliabh Sneacht mountain, multiple biking and running trails, surrounding hills, lakes and all encapsulated by truly amazing scenery. The 3 race distances were chosen to reflect the correct balance of endurance for each fitness level,” and that proved true for those who took part.

“We were delighted with the feedback from participants this year, the overall message seemed to be that Shore 2 Summit has now “come of age” as the larger field of competitors has now created a completely new atmosphere as there is always other competitor near you and keeping you focused. All feed-back was absolutely positive and contestants, regardless of race distance knew that they had been properly challenged and were buzzing at the end.

Inishowen resident John Peto says Shore 2 Summit was his 8th adventure race and …”by far the best I’ve done. The course is tough and will challenge every competitor – the sense of achievement at the end is the best I’ve ever had. Its spectacular all the way round and so tranquil – I hardly saw a car all day and felt like I was really in the wilds. Sliabh Sneacht is awesome, it’s a massive wow factor, and the organisation, venue and host gave the whole day a real sense of charm – it’s a warm, personal event and makes a real change from some of the more corporate feeling events I’ve done. When can I sign up for next year?!’

Thanks for this wonderful review, John. See you at RocksNRolling UItra in June?
