Saturday Nov 6th, 2010 at 9am was the biggest race of my life….a 12 hour adventure race in Otay Lakes.
I’ve done a few adventure races this year so I knew what to expect in the disciplines of biking, hiking, kayaking, and orienteering. But the longest race so far was at 6 hours, so this was [...]
I’m currently packing for the 12 hour Equinox Adventure race tommorrow. I’ve done a few short races and have started to get into the groove of what to pack, but I still like to have a nice check list to use to make sure I’ve got everything for the adventure race. The worst thing is [...]

Another fun filled weekend for Bangers & Mash. This time it was the Urban Dare race held in San Diego. The weather held out to be a lovely sunny day. We all met in Maloney’s Bar in the underground section – quite odd to be in the dark in the beautiful sunshine.
It was a BIG turnout [...]
“Bangers & Mash” signed up for an Adventure Race yesterday. It was held in Missions Trails Regional Park by local Adventure Racers “Team Equinox”
We met Barrie and Steve (aka Equinox) when we were trying to learn how to read navigational maps. The GPS we had for geocaching was great, but we wanted to make sure [...]
