ROUTE DESCRIPTION: The Route – the first 2km are through forestry. Runners pass a car park, we will have a steward there to give directions. The next 1km is on stone steps – they will be slippy, if wet they will be slippier. Thereafter, runners will head across open mountain for about 2km, to the fence that stretches from Bealick to Conigar. FOLLOW THE FENCE – crossing it on the descent and crossing back on the ascent might be best. This takes runners back to the trail that leads over Foilastookeen and the final few km, the Sli Ghaeltacht Mhuscrai route. This trail is newly laid, it has not bedded in, stones are loose and the descent will be a flyer. We fully expect the Medical Officer will be called on, just try to ensure it is not for you! There are two stiles to cross on the descent, we will ask the landowner if we can open the gate at the second one as it will be near the finish line.
