By | April 5th, 2018|RAAM|

 RAAM 2019:  What it all means? It’s taken a while to think about all the risks and positive outcomes of RAAM in the last 3 months. When reading and listening to previous RAAM competitors, all I get to hear is how inexplicably painful, harsh and psychologically destructive this race is. People describe it as a race that nobody finishes unscathed, a race that is harder than climbing Mount [...]

Sabine's RAAM 2019 Team SHANNON I remember offering Sabine my support in April 2017 for her solo 24 hour race - Delirium, down in Busselton, WA.
