Art O Neill Challenge and Pursuit 2023

Brendan LawlorOct 3 2022, 3:18pmOn January 13th, 2023, the Art O’Neill (AON) will once again escape from Dublin Castle. The Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team are excited to announce this year they’re adding an additional event – The AON Pursuit, a shorter race alongside the Challenge event.

In the escape of 1592 the Castle wardens gave chase, but gave up due to poor weather. The AON Pursuit recreates this element of the historical escape, and this race promises to be a super gateway event to the main Challenge for Novice Art O'Neillers. Registration opens soon on the Art O Neill website !
