Hell & Back Trojan

Quick update every-one –

I’m in the white wave, setting off at 12:40. My sister and cousins are in the last lilac wave (starting at 13:40). You can confirm your wave and start time here: http://www.hellandback.ie/BlogPost.aspx?postid=151

They say we should be there at least 60 mins before starting. So some friends and I are driving down together and plan to get there at around 11. I think it’s going to be a bit chaotic because we’re coming from different directions and we’re in different waves but once we get down there, any-one is welcome to joins us – my number is[masked] – just text me on the day and I’ll respond if I can at all! Also, take a look at the
photos of the other people in this group as well so we can say hello if/when we see each other!

My friends are finishing at different times so I’ll probably be there all day. I plan to drop into the Martello at around 6pm for the after-drink and some food! If any of you are around, please do drop in so we can share “war-stories!


P.S. Don't forget to pick up your race packs! And do take a look through the H&B website to find out more about
the location, times, recommended gear, obstacles (eek!) and other info.


See you all soon and best of luck everyone!

    Congrats every-one who competed yesterday. Hope you all had a blast! The river crossings half-killed me and we nearly had a man down in the mud swamp but still had a great day!

    Hi every-one, what wave are you all in? I'm in white. Just wondering if any of us are in the same wave?

    Every-one, the web-site also says there is a power wash rinse-down facility at the start/finish line, close to the bag drop area and changing rooms. And then the Shoreline Leisure Centre is located “just down the road” on Southern Cross Road and has swimming/shower facilities. And our packs include one drinks voucher for the afterparty in the Martello pub on the sea-front :)

    I'm sorry I missed that one to Bray.My late uncle used to have the Broadway cafe beside the station,so I spent a lot of my time there as a kid and used to love climbing Bray head.......the hardest way up I could find.I've always been a bit of an adventurer.

  • Rachel G.

    Hey everyone,
    I need to go to pick my race pack at
    53 Degrees North Blanchardstown! Is it possible that somebody give me a lift ?

    • Stephen

      FYI: "CAN I PICK UP THE EVENT PACK OF OTHER PARTICIPANTS?
      Yes, however you can now only pick up the Event Pack of ONE OTHER PERSON, so a maximum of two Event Packs per person. You must have photo ID + the Registration Confirmation Email for both packs printed with you. To help prevent delays, please also have your participant number and those of any other participant with you." http://www.hellandbac...­

    Hey there, I was actually hoping to torture myself with the Hell and Back in Jan. Do you know if that entry date has closed? Bugger, I can't make the Feb 4th one but look forward to meeting you all soon. Sinead

    • Stephen

      The January date is closed Sinead, sorry about that. There are still a few places left for Feb 2nd, but after that it is June I think before the next one.

      January 1, 2014

    • Sinead

      Thanks Stephen. I asked the question and then found my answer. Serendipity or what? Actually I just saw it posted on your other page so apologies for the repetitiveness. I too am open to fight club. Good day sir.

    Hi Jb. What level of fitness is this aimed at ? Looks like it could be deceivingly tough. More of a gym bunny and occasional runner myself than cardio sports.

    December 30, 2013

    • Stephen

      Its tough but it is doable, we did it last year and there was a wide range of people who came along, there really was all sorts. It is a 10k run, but very different to a road race as you will spend a lot of time climbing into and out of things.

      December 31, 2013

    • keith

      That's great thanks a million Stephen.

    Hi , is payment reqd before or can it be paid on day? Mark

    December 30, 2013

    • Jb M.

      This event normally sells out so you will have to pay in advance. It is also not possible to collect the race packs on the day. They normally send these out the weekend before the event so make sure you pay on time online through http://tinyurl.com/nu...­ to avoid disappointment
