The Mighty Mayo Mountain Challenge 2009 takes place on Saturday August 22 where volunteers will climb Mayo's highest three peaks — Mweelrea (814m ), Croagh Patrick (764m ), and Nephin (806m ), all in one day for Cancer Action Mayo.
Volunteers are asked to participate in the climb and to act as support crew and medical teams (physios and trained first aiders ).
This will be a physically and mentally demanding challenge so it is important that participants in the climb have a good level of fitness and have completed some hill/mountain climbing in the course of their training. Group training sessions will take place every Sunday morning from now until August 22. For more information and registration contact: Vincent McHale on [email protected]; 087 410 6496.
