First up on Saturday 1st April is the famed Mayo Mud Run, an 8km, energy-sapping cross-country adventure race across fields, forests, rivers and road. You’ll run, walk, jump, crawl over and through the beautiful natural bogland terrain of Moygownagh, with a surprise around every corner. This will make up the first part of your adventure weekend in Mayo and definitely the muckiest!
Mud is only ever a soggy footstep away as you navigate the forest trails, scale the obstacles and go muckin’ crazy on this great community-centred event.
Once you’ve been hosed down and have warmed up with some of Moygownagh’s finest restorative tea and cake, you can turn your thoughts to the second part of this fantastic adventure weekend in Mayo North!
The first annual Nephin Up and Over Challenge takes place at 11am on Sunday 2nd April in Lahardane, near Crossmolina.
Taking in a 5km run, an ascent to the summit and descent down the other side, with a 5km road run to bring you back to base, this has the makings of a fantastic day out and a great challenge for those who want to challenge themselves and their fitness levels.
Best of luck to everyone taking part in either or both events – have a blast and we hope the sun shines!
