It’s time to get organizing the annual trip to Northern Ireland for the British champs race on March 29th.
This year’s race will be a new race and up a new mountain for many – none other than Northern Ireland’s highest peak – the 850 metre Slieve Donard. The race will be a classic short measuring in at 7.5k / 4.7 miles with a monster 850 metre / 2789 feet of climb, starting and finishing in Donard Park in the town of Newcastle.
Historically there has been a big Eryri crowd of 20+ heading over to race so a good chance to race in a new area. The post race party is always a big highlight!
Online entry will be on this page in the new year:
The usual plan is to head over on the ferry at appx. 1800hrs on the Friday and return on the Sunday at appx. 1500hrs. Eryri will contribute to transport costs to all club members. Accommodation is always a highlight, the club annually uses the following set of cottages:
Providing we fill them, the cost is usually very cheap and are an excellent location, a few miles from Newcastle and on the coast.
So get in touch if your interested – quickly, as trip often fills early.
