About this event

The Mournes 7 Sevens is a long distance route in the Mourne Mountains which includes all 7 mountains over 700m (sort of- Meelmore historically accidentally slipped in there). We will tell you more about that on the day!

This is a big challenge! You will be hiking for 26km and ascend/descend 2,500m. It will take approximately 12-14 hours and you will need a very good level of fitness to complete this challenge.
