Moonlight Challenge 2015
The Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team are very pleased to announce that registration for Moonlight Challenge 2015, which takes place on the Saturday 21st of November, is now OPEN!

The Moonlight Challenge is an invigorating walking/running adventure through some of the most spectacular scenery of the Wicklow Mountains and takes place under a full moon, cloud willing!

The Challenge this year is a stunning 28 km route through the romantic hidden gems of Wicklow's Glens and hills. We can promise you an unparalleled vista of the Glendalough Valley and an opportunity to experience some of our lesser trodden tracks and trails. So time to start dusting off those walking boots and coming up with weird and wacky team names!

The Moonlight Challenge is the main fundraising event for the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team. It was brought into being in 2010 to assist in raising sponsorship to help construct our Mountain Rescue Base which was completed in 2012. Following on from this, the successful Moonlight Challenge events of 2012 and 2013 helped secure a new mobile command vehicle and the 2014 event helped fund vital training and running costs. All of these have been significant investments and have been made possible by the enthusiasm and dedication of our Challenge participants.

Log on to http://www.moonlightchallenge.com/ for full details and registration
Registration will close on November 1st or when we fill the event. Get in early as the event can fill up fast!

Tooreennamna: False Summits abound

This summit, at least on the approach from Glenbeg Lough, is characterised by the number of false summits that emerge as you gain height.

Tooreennamna: Orphaned Outlier of Cummeenageera
