Featuring a ferry, spectacular views across the North Atlantic, Malin Head and, of course, a 24 hour McDonalds!
I’ll be carrying out a final route check on Sunday and updating gps and route sheet.
With about 4000 m of climbing this should not be the toughest of 400’s, but close observers of the profile may notice a couple of sharp climbs, including the “Gap of Mamore” from the old Audax Ireland banner. The Sperrins start at about 280Km offering some challenge to tired legs.
ALL ENTRIES MUST BE IN ADVANCE by Tuesday 5’th May
I’d rather you entered and didn’t show than show up without entering as I have to print Brevet cards, route sheets etc.
