We participate in the exciting raid by companies that Cisco organizes every year. This is the European championship for raids between companies. There are three intense days of testing where each of the participants enters a frantic and competitive state where the mind and the physicist play together in a team fight. The concept is a bit American trying to instill that team spirit where each piece is a vital component to achieve the purpose in mind. Although sometimes it looked like a frikada, without a doubt, the experience was unforgettable.

Among the modalities were competitions in kayaking, canoeing, mountain biking, night races, orientation races between the dunes. Some of the tests were overlapping - that is, the teams were split to perform two different sports modalities to achieve the goal - and above all, the most important thing: a good organization and know how to work as a team.

The place: The emerald island. In the Irish county of Donegal. A beautiful landscape with beaches full of dunes and magical forests that seemed taken from Tolkien's imagination. The rain, of course, accompanied us, but when one is in a competitive state, one does not know that it is raining or cold.

After three days of little sleep, leaving the physical and the brain we were in a meritorious thirteenth place and first mitxo team - we had a girl on the team that turned out to be a machine - and we qualified for the Raids world championship to be held in Nice this year.
