Slieve Donard is the highest mountain in Northern Ireland at 2796 feet and together with the neighbouring peak of Slieve Commedagh (2515 feet) it dominates the skyline above the coastal town of Newcastle in County Down.The race has previously been a British Championship event in 1997, 1999 and 2004 and many championship contenders will therefore be familiar with it. As one of the classic Mourne races it has also featured in the Northern Ireland Championship on many occasions.
