As promised, there will be plenty of opportunities to hike between now and the event itself.
There are night hikes every Wednesday night. For this week’s hike, meet at Taylors Three Rock pub at 8pm. The walk will take in Kilmashogue, Fairycastle, down by Three Rock and back to Taylors. Head torches are an essential piece of kit. Everyone welcome to attend.
With regards hikes slightly further afield, see below;
Sunday 10th January – Lugnaquilla (one of the 4 Peaks, Wicklow mountains)
Sunday 24th January – Slieve Donard (one of the 4 Peaks, Mourne mountains)
Sunday 7th February – Tonelagee & Stoney Top (Wicklow mountains)
Sunday 21st February – Seahan & Corrig (Dublin mountains)
We will meet in the den at 8.45am for each of these. This will allow for car-pooling.
On Sunday 6th March, we will meet in the den, not go hiking but run through all the finer details and collect sponsorship monies etc.
On the subject of sponsorship, the budget is very tight so please do the very best that you can with this. Minimum is €150 for adult climbers, €60 for youth climbers and €50 for support team.
A lot of employers do matched contribution either individually or for the whole event. If this is an option where you work, please put the feelers out. Registered charity number is 3507.
Yours in Scouting,
4 Peaks Support Team
