Gaelforce North

Gaelforce NorthGaelforce North is now only 4 weeks away, so if you haven’t yet, its time to get off the sofa and START TRAINING! Join the 6,000 others who sign up for a Gaelforce Event each year, experience something new and find out where a little determination and a whole heap of enthusiasm can get you!

The Gaelforce North adventure race will take place on the 29th June 2013 in the Gweedore region, as Gaelforce Events, Ireland’s leading adventure race organisers, kick off their 3rd year of running Gaelforce North in Donegal.

Gaelforce North will offer 2 course distances, the shorter sprint course at 42km and the full length course at 64km. Competitors will take in parts of the Glenveigh National Park, Gartan lake, a cycle around the Derryveagh Mountains, climbing Errigal and finishing with a cycle back to Bunbeg. The sprint course starts and finishes at the same points as the longer course, but has a shorter cycle, kayak and trail section.

Gaelforce Events is an adventure race company based on the West Coast of Ireland. They run a number of adventure races including Gaelforce West, which over the last 6 years has grown to become the largest event of its kind in the world.

Deciding to take on the challenge will change your life, your focus and your outlook; it will see you test your endurance, your resilience-both mental and physical and your stamina to reach a finish line moment that you will treasure forever.
