This weekend saw the second MonsterMac adventure race in Millstreet Co. Cork. Unfortunately I was not a competitor but this time the shoe was on the other foot I was one of the organizers and it’s a totally different perspective. A long day was put in on the day before the race marking the run routes and the bike routes. Transition areas were put up and registration set and ready. Thankfully the rain stayed away but it was a frosty morning and the sun rarely appeared so the layers were needed for this race. This year we put on a shorter route the BabyMac to encourage first timers and we had 70 brave virgin adventurers.
