Tuff-Inish Adventure Race
September 28, 2019| EUR189
Tuff-Inish promises to be a real physical and mental challenge, fueled by the spectacular scenery at every turn and twist of the course. The hilly Donegal landscapes and unpredictable Autumn weather will be a major player in the unpredictable outcome over all 6 stages to an exhilarating and Tuff Finish.
Tuff-Inish has a 12 hour cut-off and can be completed Solo or in teams of 2 or 3 so if your not into Adventure racing this is also a decent challenge for a runner / cyclist team. The event starts and finish in Moville at Moville Celtic F.C. Clubhouse
Extreme North organisation, hospitality and medals will be all up to the customary high standards.
This event is also the perfect “stepping stone” for The RACE 2020, same sequence, halved distances and a matching level of difficulty and endurance and an abundance of scenery.
