The Irelander

The Irelander


adventure has a new name

Whether you like to run forest, or walk fells, you’re up for a challenge… If ‘the every day’ is not your way, and you’re peak rather than peaky, consider The Irelander – brand new and comin’ right at you in April, 2013It’s a four peak challenge – but not as you know it – this one runs day and night through some of the most breathtaking places you’ve never been.

In 48 hours you’ll attempt four summits, be driven a long distance and compete against a variety of teams, including several from the emergency services, mountain rescue and big business.

While the challenge is personal, the ethos is ‘team’ – you’ll have two designated drivers and up to five ‘summiteers’ – sleep will be snatched, whereas victory will be by design.

You’ll already be fit, but stamina will be king: four summits, 48 hours – daylight and darkness, onwards and upwards – this island race is like no other.

The benchmark is high, and the craic will be mighty – you’ll need skill to find your way, on this journey of self-discovery – you’ll dig deep, as you reach for the sky.

Brought to you by the people who save lives in the mountains – Mountain Rescue Ireland – this is your opportunity to give something back through fundraising, while pushing your personal fitness that little bit further.

If you do one good thing in ’13, make it this one…Be a part of the legend that’s ready to be written.
