The DARE - Dublin Adventure Race - 21st May 2011

Updated on May. 22nd, 2011

Adventure racing arrived in Dublin city on the 21st of May. With biking, running, kayaking, abseiling just some of what DARE involved while taking the competitors all over the city, discovering how epic Dublin really can be. The high light for many was the 40metre abseil from the roof of the Aviva Stadium in to thin air.

With teams of two or three and solo competitors, the race kicked off at The Adventure Weekend at the RDS, Dublin 4 with a bike section, which took the competitors along beaches, canal paths and into parks with a tricky assault course to master along the way. Competitors then took to kayaks in Grand Canal basin before changing to their runners to complete a "street orienteering" section where they could pick up points for every checkpoint reached. Some checkpoints included challenges, some checkpoints were in iconic Dublin locations and some required you to use your brain rather than your brawn to find them! Then it was back to the water for the "secret challenge" before some more biking and the awesome abseil from Dublinís most impressive building! And so back to the RDS to complete an epic day of urban adventure.

Action Photography was covering the Abseil in the Aviva stadium and the photos of the have been broken up into galleries based on the time the shoots were taken. If you check your results it will show you when you dibbed in at the stadium and give you some indication of what gallery you're shots will be in.
