Event Details

Start: St. Patrick’s Church, Stamullen

Time: 6am (The shop in Stamullen will not be open at this time or on return after 9:30pm)

Route Description:

The route will leave Stamullen moving north through the counties of Meath, Monaghan and Armagh. Then heading east towards the Mourne Mountains and the main climb of the day over Spelga Dam (just once ;-)) at 167km.  The route then returns over the Cooley mountains and down along the coast passing through Dundalk, Clogherhead, and Drogheda before finishing at Stamullen.

There will be climbing, but the scenic nature of the route should make it worthwhile.

Route Map:

This will be a self-supported event, which means that there are unlikely to be any manned controls, and definitely no support vehicle. However, there are plenty of options for refueling en route. Please read this page for more details on what to expect on a self-supported event.
