Fancy something long and hard?
Moire brings news of a couple of events to target in the Irish and Northern Irish ultra and off-road marathon scene in the coming weeks and months.
You could do worse than book yourself a holiday for the weekend of the 13th of June in the wonderful Mourne Mountains, as the Mourne Way Marathon is still open for entries up until the 31st of May.
The main event will see competitors race the 26 miles of the Mourne Way from Newcastle to Rostrevor, Co Down. This route is a linear route, almost entirely off road, traversing the foothills of the Mourne Mountains passing Tollymore Forest, Fofanny Dam, Spelga Dam, Leitrim Lodge and Yellow Water before arriving at the finish in Kilbroney Park in Rostrevor.
