Objective: The Seven Sevens is an 18 mile, 8100ft test of endurance and mountain skills . The objective is to climb all seven peaks in the Mourne Mountains that are over 700m above sea level following your own route between fixed checkpoints.
Organised for 25 years by The Spartan Redsox walking club, Lagan Valley Orienteers are now proud to take on stewardship of this iconic annual challenge walk. As one of Ireland’s premiere orienteering clubs LVO have over 40 years of experience in organising large events, including UK and Irish national events, in our parks and mountain areas.
It is important to note that this site is for the Challenge Walk only. It’s not a race; there are no prizes. If you plan to do the mountain race which is run as a separate event then you should consult the Northern Ireland Mountain Running Association (NIMRA) website http://www.nimra.org.uk/.
Participants need to be have the skills, fitness and experience to complete a walk of this length in the high mountains.
