British Championship Rnd – Donard Challenge – Entries now open

On the 29th of March 2014 two hundred and fifty men and women, young and old, set off into the mist on a date with destiny. The clag on the hill that day was so dominant it had already claimed an entire mountain range. How could mere mortals armed only with beanie hats and mars bars defeat it’s might?

The answer came screaming in the wind from villages for miles around as locals, and visitors a like, lost their battle with direction ending up as vest clad oddities in front gardens across the Kingdom of Mourne.

Fast forward three years later and Jon Krakauer is still writing a book about the incident. Before it is published we are going to give the fell running nation one last chance to rewrite history. To that end we invite you to take on the Donard Challenge one more time. Dare you return in 2017?
