As hosted by An oige, the Ring of Imaal Challenge is held every consecutive year. A circular route that starts and finishes in Donard, Co. Wicklow. A walk that has a considerable footfall on road (first third) - it isn't until around the 10km mark that the first true ascent (of Keadeen) begins. After around the 16km mark - the attack on Lugnaquillia begins - so from here on - navigational skills may very well be called upon (especially if heavy mist befalls Table Mountain). Jim Holmes.

Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 10h 19m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
