Hot on the heels of the highly anticipated Mayo Mud Run comes the Nephin Up and Over Challenge.

Nephin Up and Over Challenge - 2nd April 2017 LogoThe newest adventure challenge in North Mayo, the Nephin Up and Over Challenge on the region’s highest mountain takes place on Sunday 2nd April 2017.

The Nephin Up and Over Challenge starts with a 5km road run from the Community Centre in scenic Lahardane village in North Mayo towards the R315, turning towards Carrowskeheen to the foot of  this iconic mountain.

Then it’s “up and over” as participants scale the summit on one side and descend  towards the townland of Cloughbrack, followed by a 5km road run back to Lahardane.

Afterwards, there’ll be a prizegiving ceremony in Murphy’s Pub, Lahardane Village, and of course some refreshments and entertainment too.

The Up and Over Challenge is a fundraiser for three great local causes – Glen Neiphin Men’s Shed, Nephin View Restoration Group and Lahardane Tidy Towns Group.
