Mourne Seven Sevens
The Mourne Seven Sevens is a challenge event organised by the Spartan Red Sox Walking Club where seven peaks of 700 metres or more are covered in the course of 17.5 miles (28k) and is popular both with hill-runners and walkers alike.
Taking place in the beautiful Mourne Mountains during the month of August each year it offers a particularly pleasant day out for those who wish to satisfy their eyes as well as their legs.
