The Seven Sevens
***NA SEACHT SEACHTANNA***NEWSFLASH****I have discovered an Organisation called "The Northern Ireland Mountain Running Association" They RACE the 7x7s...while the rest of us walk. Walkers get to go any route they wish. In theory this means that one could begin with Donard, then waltz over to Meelbeg, then back to Commedagh and so on. But the Mountain Runs Folk follow a FIXED route as their publicity reveals. I quote:"The Mourne Seven Sevens will start from Donard car park on Saturday the 7th August at 10.00 am. [for runners...walkers start from 7am] The route will be on a fixed course taking the hills concerned in the following order…. Donard, Commedagh, Bearnagh, Meelmore, Meelbeg, Ben Crom Dam, Binnian, Lamagan, and back to the finish at the Pavilion in Donard Park." I find this very helpful as a potential walker of the 7.7s. I suspect that, since the RUNNERS take a fixed route, you can say ipso facto that theirs is the shortest. {Editor's Note: "Captain, the kind of folk who like to race up and down mountains may have other motivations than the avoidance of suffering..."} Yes thank you Editor, I realise that. but I still strongly suspect that the RUNNERS ROUTE is the best route, and the one we should all take. """"""""""I would love to hear comments from any of you who have already "done" the Seven Sevens: what route you took, weather, navigation, duration, age range of participants. Do tell all please.
