Countdown to race day!

A route that needs no introduction: The classic Mourne Skyline is an icon of Northern Irish mountain trail running, remaining relatively unchanged since inception in 2014 and for good reason!

This 35km & 2,700m+ route encompasses many of the notable peaks of the northern Mourne Mountains, traversing a plethora of technical and rocky trails and frequently handrailing the impressive Mourne Wall, before emerging from higher ground to deliver runners to the aid station at Fofanny Dam.

From here, runners head eastbound back to the coast, exploring new trails before a final sting in the tail awaits runners in the form of Slieve Donard and its unrelenting gradient. After a final glance out to the Irish Sea (visibility permitting!), it’s all downhill to the finish at Donard Park – R.I.P quads!

A truly iconic event of Northern Ireland, rich in history and sure to leave a lasting impression on all who complete it — every mountain lover should run this race once!
