Raid the Rib 2018

A little mud, a few hills and a lot of fun! The Sisters joined in on the fun and participated in Donโ€™t Get Losts Raid the Rib on Sunday. The event was held on the Niagara escarpment down near Niagara-on-the-Lake based out of Niagara College, a perfect venue for this event.

Course is mapped out and we are ready to go!

This was the first time we were able to participate as a team of two in a Raid. That meant we only had to look after one another throughout the run.

Maps in hand and compasses security tucked away in our packs off we went. This year there were 4 controls you could find in any order that were not worth points called the spine and a number of ribs off the spine that were full of points to find. We planned our route and stuck to it. Picking off the spine controls along with some of the ribs.

Screaming Tunnel, and mud!

It sounds easy but we were running up and down the escarpment, through mud (lots of mud), rocks, boulders and brush. Up and down cliffs and through more than a few streams that flow off the escarpment. It was a blast! We found every control we had planned to find and even the bonus controls.

Looking for the control

After scrapping off the mud we enjoyed the barbecue and salads and Glenis even won some of the draw prizes! A great day! Bring on the next event โ€“ Storm the Trent!

Listening to last minute instructions and the Winner is! (of the draw prize)

Weโ€™re Back!

Last year was a bit of a bust for the Sisters but we are recovered, home, healthy and ready to go this year.

We’ve been planning our season and our training for this year. We are excited to get started with Raid the Rib in two weeks down near Niagara on the Lake.

Now that the weather has finally decided to cooperated we got some miles in on the bike today!
