TEA, EGG, WHY........ FUN





Rab Mountain Marathon 2014 
Longsleddale


Well, I think it was Longsleddale. All place names had been removed from the maps but it did say Longsleddale on the car sticker.

This was team Ibuprofens 4th Rab MM and Ourea Events first. Previous organisers Dark & White had set the bar high, earning the Rab a reputation for being a challenging but relaxed and friendly event.
I am happy to say, Shane and his team did a fantastic job and continued the tradition, of slick organisation with a friendly atmosphere.

Here are some of team Ibuprophens highlights and randoms for this year:


Meeting old friends and new Hanno, Paul, Matt and Ike, Splatcher and little miss Splatcher.

Missing a control. Grrrrrrrr!(still not happy about that)

Clag, getting lost in it

Clag, relocating and getting unlost

Control code letters, TEA, EGG, FUN, WHY. I actually LOLed

Finally, a very big thank you to Shane Ohly and all who made the 2014 Rab such a success.
See you next year.
