The third weekend in September witnessed the DofE Wales Adventure race. It doesn't seem like a year since the last one, but it had been, and therefore it was time to get the team together and get those running shoes on!
With A to Z Expeditions
providing and organising the marshalls for the event, we had a smaller pool of 'athletes' to choose from, as some of last year's winners were marshalling this year! This meant that we had to go into the race with five instead of six, and therefore incur a
penalty of 10% on allof our times. However, 'train hard, fight easy' paid off, and we headed the field of fifteen teams thoughout the two days.
The two days consisted of running, biking, paddling, hiking and orienteering, covering large areas
of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
DofE Wales helps lots of young people, and we were glad to help, and to win - well done fellas!
