The Annual Glen of Imaal MRT Moonlight Challenge is always one of the best organised challenge walks on the calendar in my experience. This year's route started and ended in Glendalough going around the edges of the Glen. This route does not take in any MV summits, but comes close to three. Most of the ascent is done by the time you pass Lugduff SE Top and much of the route is on forestry tracks, boardwalks and well established routes.
One of the benefits of doing this as a Moonlight Walk is that you avoid the madding crowds that throng the lower reaches of this area on your average weekend! The only downside can be traffic congestion caused by slower walkers on the boardwalk sections!
While there was great disappointment for those looking for a supermoon over the last couple of nights, there was no such disappointement on Saturday night, when this Challenge was indeed a Moonlight one!

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 6h 18m + 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.
