The inaugural 2014 Mourne Skyline MTR did not disappoint and received attention from a worldwide audience. Let’s face it, when 2014 winner and Skyrunner World Series Champion, Stevie Kremer says, ‘That is the hardest race I have ever done!’ It puts it all into perspective…
It was an incredible event and one that saw a quality field line up. Male winner, Kim Collison and 2nd placed lady, Jo Meek both respective UK Trail Champions were joined by local and international talent. Expect a similar field in 2015.
Well it’s now time to start thinking about returning to Ireland and entering the 2015 edition.
As in 2014, the Mourne Skyline MTR will have a capped field so don’t delay, we anticipate high demand!
