The booking deadline for Mayo’s Sunrise Summit Challenge is fast approaching. All individuals, families and teams looking to join the annual Irish Red Cross charity event are asked to sign up by Tuesday, March 31.
The Sunrise Summit Challenge will take place on Sunday, April 12 and has routes suitable for every level of fitness and experience. Simultaneously taking place at six mountain locations across Ireland, participants across the country will hike through the early morning darkness, reaching the mountain summit in time to witness a beautiful spring sunrise. The remote grit and sandstone massif of Mweelrea, also known as the Grey bald Mountain, stands at 819 meters. From the summit, there are spectacular views of Killary Harbour, the Atlantic coast and Connemara.
Participants choose which mountain to hike from six mountains in Kerry, Wicklow, Tipperary, Mayo and Donegal. All offering a range of exciting route types. From ambling treks through beautiful woodland to more challenging hikes up steep ridges, this challenge will appeal to everyone from seasoned adventurers to Sunday hikers.
