South Kerry Round? (Part II)
The Lough Duff Circuit – follow the Kerry Way east and break off for Broaghnabinnia, and from there on to Stumpa Duloigh (784m), Stumpa Duloigh South East Top. At this stage the hard work is all done, and although there’s a few miles left across Knocknabreeda, Crossderry and Mothailin, it’s the home stretch. One meets the road at the Upper Lough again, and returns along the route that skirts that lake and back to the car.

The above is all very theoretical. If someone with better computer skills than me and time on their hands could plot it out on some map, it might give a better idea of all the foregoing. I do like the way it takes in 4 ranges with some natural breaks in valleys beside a cafe or pub. Being a running novice and not knowing the first thing about ultra marathons, someone with more experience might scoff and say it’s too easy...or too hard. When the running season ends, think I might try and walk it all in stages and report back here and let ye know the viability of it all. To be a true round for running purposes, there has to be some prospect of getting it done in 24 hours..so have to find some guinea pig for that aspect too!
