Congratulations to Eoin Keith and Chris Caulfield on winning the 24 hour event in the 2010 Setanta Rogaine Ireland.
The 6 hour event was won by Setanta’s Terry Lawless and Hazel Thompson. Click here for full results.
Well done to all who took part and completed the 24 and 6 hours. Conditions were perfect with the ground underfoot being pretty dry for that part of Wicklow. It was great to see 2 teams from abroad taking part, one from Estonia and one from Belgium.
Finally thanks to Dave Weston, Denis Deasy, Jim Mulrooney and Tony Doolin for their hard work in putting out the controls and to Dave and Denis for manning the hash house for 24 hours. Those completing the 24 hours welcomed the BBQ as they finished. Thanks also to Base Camp, Middle Abbey Street, Dublin for sponsoring the prizes.
Hopefully we will get a report or two soon from both the 24 and 6 hour competitors.
