Could you run the ‘Rock’?

Bray People - - SPORT -

ON Satur­day, June 4, at 11am in the lux­u­ri­ous sur­rounds of the Brook­logde Ho­tel, Ma­cred­din, the start­ing gun will sound the start of ‘Run The Rock 2016’.

This is a run which tests both body and mind. Some say its a ‘char­ac­ter builder’.

Over­look­ing Aughrim, Cush­bawn is a 400m high moun­tain with stun­ning views over sur­round­ing coun­try­side and hills. It is a for­mi­da­ble chal­lenge to walk this let alone en­deav­our to run it. You will en­counter a 350m climb in the first 3km of this for­est trail. When you reach the top you can quench your thirst at the sum­mit water sta­tion where you can ad­mire the stun­ning views.

You will then de­scend via more for­est trails and loop around the Sean Line­han Walk and back up to the fin­ish line at the Brook­lodge. (out­side Ac­tons Bar)
