"Hi Lads,I have been talking to Galty walkers they will allow us to register 10 runners with them on the last Sunday of June.it is limited to 10 because of the distance and the navigation issues any one wishing to run on the day has to have a mandatory kit with them and be able to read a map.It is also advisable to bring your mobile phone with you.I will need to know a week in advance the names of the people who are running so we can book seats on the bus if you cannot run on the day please let us know as others might want to go in your place.This run is also on the day after Lug.. reg is at Cahir castle before 7.45am then the bus will take us to Angelsborough where the event starts.

Paul SmythMay 16, 2:38pmI was interested in doing this but it clashes with the Rogaine.

For those still interested, there seems to be some conflicting information being given in the previous posts. The site

http://www.galteewalkingclub.ie/challenge.html

lists the date of the Galty Challenge as June 24th. The previous post says it's the day after the Lug race, but according to the IMRA calendar the Lug race is on Jun 30th.

Perhaps Tom can clarify...
