There was a complete whiteout in the Mourne Mountains during this episode, but it was a lot of fun. The course is listed in the end credits.
On a very cold wintry day, I ascended Slieve Donard via the Black Stair, then on to Chimney Rock Mountain, Rocky, and finished with Slieve Commedagh.
Episode 30 of iRunOverMountains covers a 39Km route in the western Mourne Mountains on a chilly November morning. Enjoy 🙂
A recce of the Mourne 500s route.
The Spelga Skyline fell race is one of the long distance events in the NIMRA Championship race calendar, and every year I experience the exhausting pleasure that accompanies the role of Race Director.
Now in its fourth year since returning to the championship. The ‘Denis Rankin Memorial’ Spelga Skyline is possibly the most challenging race of the season. Often requiring navigation across open mountain.
This year we made a video 🙂
Thanks to my video assistant on the day, Geoff Smyth, and also to all the great BARF marshals.
Graham has done it again! More fantastic footage from the Hill & Dale race series
I mixed it up today on the weekly long run, by modifying my ‘high peaks’ route, which links three of the highest peaks in the Mourne Mountains to include scrambling routes wherever possible. I had a lot of fun until the thunder storm 😲
36.5km, 2403m evaluation. Ronda dels Cims training is well underway!

Here’s some awesome drone footage from yesterday’s Slieve Donard fell race.
We’re having great weather at the moment in Northern Ireland. It’s a bit windy, but easy on the eye and lovely dry ground.
Here’s the weekend long run 🤙🏼
