Race Description

The Gaelforce Mountain Run takes place over unmarked routes in the northern Maamturk mountains in wildest Connemara. This is a unique opportunity to access this stunning route with special permission being granted for the event by local landowners. This challenging course features steep ascents and descents with 22km and 12km options suitable for experienced mountain runners only. New for 2016 is an Introductory 12km mountain run for those of reasonable fitness who want to get started at mountain running. The Gaelforce Mountain Run is the only one of its kind on the west coast of Ireland and places are limited and so are expected to sell out fast.
