Jeremy competes at World's in Tahoe  (USA)

orienteering map

ArmaSkin Ambassador Jeremy recently competed in the World Rogaining 24-hour Championships near Lake Tahoe. 

We aren't really sure what is called Rogaining and what is called Orienteering but  we think this might be the difference. In both rogaining and orienteering, participants navigate through a course using a map and compass. However, there are some key differences between the two sports. the checkpoints in orienteering must be visited in a specific order, while in rogaining, they can be reached in any order. Additionally, orienteering events are typically shorter than rogaining ones, with a typical orienteering session lasting anywhere from one to three hours. In contrast, rogaining is a sport of long-distance cross-country navigation, and events can last up to 24 hours.

We'd be happy to be corrected on our understanding!

The 100 miler has to be completed in the 36 hour cutoff.After the event Brad let us know, "Wild Goose 100miler in the books! Tropical Storm Ophelia tried her best to stop me with her relentless rain 🌧 nice try 🤣.   No crew, no pacer....lone wolf 🐺 no pack. 6th place overall 👊

Big thanks to @armaskin_protection for the anti-blister socks, simply the best (discount code in bio). Great event, @sassquadtrailrunning, and the volunteers were awesome 👌"

DogFoot and Mom  (Yosemite National Park)


It's easy to see where ArmaSkin Ambassador Erick (aka Dogfoot Trailing) gets his good looks from!  Here's Erick, who shared his PCT tour with us last year, pictured at Yosemite.

Erick, "It was a privilege to show my mom Yosemite for the 1st time. She enjoyed it more than she thought except for the part when I told her there was more to hike to get to Nevada falls😆. Her words "this is a magical place" which I agree. Don't leave this life without seeing it with your own eyes. The drive no matter how far is worth it."


Surf Coast Century (Australia)

ArmaSkin Ambassador Luke, I back on the trail after an injury layoff.

"Shout put to these legend that took on Surf Coast Century as a team over the weekend and smashed it. On a warm day for running it was smiles all round. Well done crew!"


Mermaids Cave Blue Mountains NSW

tree roots

Showing where there's a will there's a way !On a trip to Mermaids Cave, ArmaSkin Ambassador Kerry, came across this tree which has made its home atop a monolith.

Mermaids Cave is an incredible sandstone overhang in a dramatic setting, less than a 10 minute walk from the main road. It’s accessed via one of the most atmospheric sections of track on any walk in the Blue Mountains, directly through the middle of a cleft in two towering cliff walls.

If you’re really lucky, the majesty of the scene will be topped off with a waterfall, but it does require a visit directly after heavy rain for the falls to be impressive.  It’s near another short and pretty trail at Coachwood Glen.

Tollymore Forest Park.  (Northern Ireland)


ArmaSkin Ambassador Tracey has been sharing her photo experiences from her European hiking holiday. Last month we gave insights to her Norway leg and this month she's messaged from her home town in Northern Ireland.

Tracey in her Instagram post exclaimed: "It made my brain so bloody happy to be here today.
I haven't been home in 26 years and in some ways it is still the same as when I was 10."

Tollymore Forest Park must have provided a great grounding for Tracey's love of the outdoors.
