Route Description:

The route follows a Clockwise circular route up the left hand side of the valley, before turning right and a short sharp climb to the summit of Slieve Meelbeg in the Mournes, meaning Little Bald Mountain – ironic as the ‘little one’ is a few metres taller than the big one!

U17 & U20 Course – 4km 393m ascent

– as you will see in the link, the course doesn’t climb Meelmore, but rather heads up the valley to the Col, before summiting Meelbeg and then running down the ridge to the finish.
