AROC Paddy Pallin Series 2009-2010

The 2009-10 season saw the TriHards field two teams for all of the races, and the introduction of the TweeHards! The season started with staggering lows, as McFly damaged ligaments in his ankle up in Wyong, and climbed to fantastic heights as the reinvigorated (assisted by their Vibrams) Sydney team thought they finally defeated the Canberra TriHards in Nelson Bay!

TriHards Take a Tour of Port Stephens

An often-overlooked aspect of Adventure Racing is the opportunity it provides competitors to see and experience new locations. And the ultimate race in the AROC Paddy Pallin series for 2009-10 was no different. The team at AROC had headed out to Port Stephens, found some of the most spectacular views and experiences, and then formulated a course that took much of them in!

Doc Runaway Bares Her Soles!

My story starts at the Adventure Megastore in Kent St, Sydney. I had just, with some trepidation, bought my first pair of Vibram Five Fingers, a pair of ‘sprints’ in Lilac and was about to embark on my own barefoot career! Five Fingers were the idea of industrial designer Robert Fliri, and made commercially by Vibram, being named one of Time Magazine’s best investions for 2007. The company promotes them as a new way to stimulate and exercise the delicate balance of bones and muscles of the foot, improving mainly proprioception, but also balance and agility.

Adventures in Washing!

Success! Victory! Remember this day, dear readers, for 13 February, 2010 marks the day the TriHards achieved another fantastic goal in their adventure racing career. No, no, don’t look at the results, they are just numbers! Numbers are things for bureaucrats and accountants, not the stuff of hardy racing types (unless, of course, they’re measurements of distance and speed!) No, on this day, the TriHards were truly challenged; and they met that challenge!

The TweeHards Rainy Day Out!

So after an early start of weet-bix and coffee, the junior TriHards, officially known as the TweeHards sallied forth into the first real rain Canberra has had since Christmas. Why the TweeHards I hear you ask? Well The Cap’n is an experienced TriHard and the girls (The Pinkinator and Lu) are ever so cute, dainty and/or delicate, so it just sort of made sense.

Adventures in the Wilds of Wyong!

The first race in the AROC Paddy Pallin series, held in Wyong included a rollercoaster ride through the mountains, and provided an emotional rollercoaster ride for the TriHards! For the ever-adventurous TriHards, the race was marred by tragedy and loss, though they pushed through with determination, high spirits and had a most excellent time.
