Event description

Description


Join us for a unique opportuntiy to take a 17km night walk along the forest tracks and walking paths through the Galway Windpark under the light of a full moon. Organised with support from Coillte and SSE Ireland, proceeds from this event will be used to support Galway Mountain Rescues teams long term objective of constructing a dedicated mountain rescue base.


The full route is 17.1km long with an altitude gain of 384m. The shorter option (the northern half of the full Fig-8 route) is 9km with an altitude gain of 185m.

Participants will be briefed on the walk and will be given a copy of the Walk Route Map. Participants can opt to walk with one of the organised groups which will each be led by a member of Galway MRT or they can choose to follow the route independently with their own friends/family. In either case, they will meet route marshals along the way who will assist if required.
