This is the route for the 2023 Blackstairs Challenge hosted by the Wayfarers Hillwalking Club. This was the 40th time that the club has run this event and it was the first since Covid. What a great event. The walk was very well organised and run with >50 volunteers along 7 checkpoints providing encouragement and support for the almost 200 walkers. The last few km of the walk was changed and lengthened from prior events for access reasons and were on tarmac roads finishing at Byrnes Pub in Glynn.
