The Irish Red Cross’ exciting challenge event – the Sunrise Summit Challenge 2017 is fast approaching! The Irish Red Cross would like to invite you and your friends to join them, on Sunday 30 April 2017, and see Ireland like you’ve never seen it before!
Sunrise Summit participants will rise to the challenge of trekking to the summit of one of the six mountains listed below in time to enjoy the sun rise over Ireland.
By signing up to take part in this event, you will have a unique & exhilarating opportunity to take part in a fully guided sunrise trek. The Sunrise Summit Challenge has mountain trails suited to most walkers, from beginners to the very experienced.
Setting off in the early hours, our highly qualified and experienced mountain guides will lead you from dark to dawn to reach the summit in time to share a spectacular sunrise, and take in some impressive views along the way!
The locations of the Sunrise Summit mountains are:
- Carrauntouhil – Co. Kerry
- Lugnaquilla – Co. Wicklow
- Djouce – Co. Wicklow
- Galtymore – Co. Tipperary
- Mweelrea – Co. Mayo
- Errigal – Co. Donegal
The registration fee for the event is €50 (early bird is €40 until March 10th). The registration fee guarantees your place on the event and is non-refundable. We’re asking participants to raise an additional €100 in sponsorship. When you register you will receive a fundraising pack and our Sunrise Summit Challenge events team will be on hand to provide advice and support along the way, from sign-up to sunrise!
