As midnight strikes in darkest Tollymore Forest Park you will hit the trail with head torches blazing and maps in hand to negotiate your way through the night. After watching the sun rise, you will push on through the next day, to the finish line to complete an adventure you will never forget. All of this is played out against the awesome backdrop of the Mountains of Mourne passing the beauty of Lough Shannagh.
