Beast Of Ballyhoura 2013

The Beast adventure race is Back and better than ever with a new website

The Beast Leap Of Faith 2011

For those that dont know The Beast Of Ballyhoura is an adventure race in every sense of the word. The course runs through Cork Limerick & Tipperary on a different route each year. How you might ask does one race go through 3 different counties? Well this particular one is run non-stop over 48 hrs! It is one of the most extreme in the country with 4 person mixed teams going completely unsupported from start to finish.

We have been lucky enough to host some of stages over the last few years and got to witness first hand the grueling punishment these athletes are put through. To be put up our 15m leap of faith after 36 hours of racing? I know i would be hating life, and gunning for an organizer or two...

This year the race will be a stage of the 2013 AERS. The AERS was started in 2012 in an attempt to create a European series of elite adventure races culminating in an event to establish Europes best adventure racing teams. With this extra string to the beasts bow, 2013 could be the year that will set the beast apart and propell it to become a household name.

We would not recommend this race to novice or first time racers but if you would like to see how the pros do it on one of the most professionally laid out courses look no further. The video below is of the event in 2011, it might give you a tiny idea of the overall event.
