This was the 4th year of running this event with 3rd different route. This time it  started and finished in Kenmare with the majority of the distance taking place on The Kerry Way trail (Old Kenmare Road).

Just over 100 brave souls made itnto the starting line of this very well organised and marshaled event. Where else will you find a former Mountain Running World Champion helping out at half way point? (John Lenihan)
Well done to WWR crew and Kenmare AC for delivering once again a top (very hard in places) running event.
After 3 years of domination by James Doran of An Riocht, it was another Kerryman that take first place - George McCarthy (FFMV AC).
