TriHards Defeat their Demons in the Blue Mountains!
There’s no denying it, the Wild Endurance is a huge event - not only in terms of actually completing the 100km trek - that’s almost the easy part when seen within the big picture. Well, no, not really, it’s still quite hard. But there are other challenges involved: there’s the fundraising components - each team member has to raise a minimum of $400. And the logistics of determining what each team member will require during the race in terms of food, drink, and comfortable places to sit and/or sleep. Finally, there's the task of trying to find people who are just as insane as the TriHards to be the support crew; who will drive around from checkpoint to checkpoint, laden with the team’s gear, ready with hot food and drink, chairs, and encouragement.
An event so big, so hard, and so complicated needs more than a simple race report. No single page will cover the drama associated with the Wild Endurance. No, discussion of such an event needs many, many pages: we want you, dear reader, to know just how overwhelming the various challenges of the Wild Endurance were, so that you know the breadth and depth of our victory in actually completing it. We want you to have every gory detail of our efforts to get a team into the race, and to actually complete it.
So, please, browse through this section and read all about our exciting tales of the Wild Endurance. Hopefully you’ll enjoy reading about it as much as we enjoyed doing it. Hopefully you’ll learn something, like not to do the Wild Endurance!
