"SIXES & SEVENS" from Bleck Cra Contract pics
Picture: SIXES & SEVENS (Contract pics)

She cast her pudgy arm over a colourful array of plastic plates, each replete with equally colourful edibles and landed a huge slab of chocolate cake.
“You have to eat” she asserted. “Absodamnedtootly” confirmed her companion, her own crockery brimming with bum-busting goodies.
This vision of calorie heaven plummeted to panoramic vistas beneath Commedagh towards the Annalong Valley animated by scudding cloud-shadows and idle threats of rain. “Our Davy did the Mournes Seven Sevens last week”. “Right…” said her companion through a cloud of red cola, egg sandwich and bafflement. “You have to climb seven mountains in seven minutes.” “Seven minutes - that’s tough!” “Challenged people do it. There’s the walkers, the trotters and the runners and the challenged people. He has a bypass you know”. Silence as she considered this. “I suppose that means he can do it faster - you know, with the car …..” The debate continues which of the Irish Challenge Walks is the toughest. The answer is simple – none, if you saunter. The Seven Sevens is (excuse the cross reference) no cake walk. It comprises 7 tops of over 700ms in one lash. Yer average fit Joe will clear it in around 11 hours, so my own brother and sister commanches proved themselves all the more dangerous with clock out times from just over 9hrs (Ruth Francisco, Peewee McGargle and Brendigo Kirk) through Cra himself at 7.55 to a blinding 7 hours and yin minute from the mercurial Sean Nickle of the Wee Binnians Challenge Group. Sympathies to a commanche chief with a girning limb. He’ll be back. All hail to the Spartan Bedsox for organising it; to all who started and finished it; and especially to our own brother/sisterhood for being so very, very good at it.
