22KM SEVERE WEATHER COURSE PROFILE  


Competitors will be bused to the starting point close to Maaum village in the Maaum valley.

Competitors will start with an ascent of the Mamean pass which brings stunning views as it takes you between two of the Maaumturk Mountains and down into the Lough Inagh valley. Flanked by the Maaumturk Mountains on your right and the Twelve Bens Mountain range on your left the route follows a 'bohereen' (small country lane) for approx 4.5km.

The route joins the Western Way walking route before changing to a rough mountain track leading you along the base of the Maaumturks before ascending to the summit of a hill overlooking the Killary Fjord. After descending from this hill you will re-join the Western Way and forestry trails leading you back to the finish line located at Killary Adventure Centre.
