This year’s Shore2Summit 2016 extreme adventure race is set for Saturday 9th April. It’s a race for all abilities with a 62k Extreme course, a 41k Sprint course, and a 23k Mini adventure course.
Organised by Inishowen’s own Extreme North, this is an Adventure Race in a paradise setting, with the snow topped Sliabh Sneacht mountains surrounded by hills, trails, lakes and amazing scenery. The 3 race distances have been chosen wisely, says the man behind Extreme North, Harold McGuinness. “They reflect the correct balance of endurance for each race type, and they offer the option to team– up. This adds to the event’s appeal to all fitness levels, from Couch to 5K right up to the elite athlete.”
Shore 2 Summit’s new home at the new Sliabh Sneacht Centre in Drumfries is a perfect base, offering showers and fantastic catering facilities for race finish. All race stages are out and back courses, and transitions are conveniently located only a few miles from the start.
The addition of a 23k Mini Adventure Course in 2015 has proved very popular while the Sprint and Extreme course won the praise of challengers due to the variety and Challenge, terrain and fantastic scenery on offered.
Extreme North FINISHING REWARDS system is there to acknowledge the hard work you put into achieving your goal on the day, says Harold. “So apart from the euphoria of having achieved something you may have previously though impossible, you have the amazing medals, T shirts, hot food, prizes and a real banter and craic with like-minded adventurer. These vital elements combine to make Shore2Summit such a unique and unmissable adventure race, and will definitely put the capon an amazing achievement in an amazing day to send you home buzzing!”
RELAY OPTIONS – Single discipline athletes can team up in the relay section to get a flavour of adventure racing, but be prepared to want to come back next year as a solo participant.
