rugged mountain terrain. Moreover, in the process, they will tick off many
of Ireland’s highest summits with a total height gain of almost 2,500 metres.
In brief this is not a race but a challenge event where participants will test their personal navigational skills, fitness, determination and stamina. Have you got what it takes?!?!?!
Uniquely for over 200 years Cronin’s Yard has been used as the traditional starting point for ascents of Ireland’s highest mountains. It is situated at the entrance to the Hag’s Glen at Mealis, Beaufort. Not only is this the gateway to the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks but also the most perfect place to begin and end such a spectacular high mountain challenge.
In addition, Cronin’s Yard offers the walker ample car parking facilities and a selection of services for participants. These range from packed lunches to a well deserved hot shower after a long day on Ireland’s premier mountain range.
Registration for the event is now open and numbers are strictly limited for this event. Early booking is advisable to avoid disappointment!
