Any further ideas on the dates?

I am not available on 24th as at Stiff Little Fingers and Therapy etc at Custom House square.
Thanks

A fine alternative to be at.  Was at SLF last year.  Great band.

Brilliant, well done. I'd love to have the level of fitness needed. Maybe next year ;)

Congratulations! It is a great achievement!

I actually didn't do it. Because we had already done it earlier in the year (and The Mourne Wall also) we decided we didn't want to face the weather.
Looking back now of course I wish I had went!

Well that’s the Seven Sevens done. On Friday I have never checked the weather so often and it was changing all the time. At tea time we decided that due to the thunder and lighting we would play it safe and not take part. Then another check of the weather and it was improving. Rucksack was packed and alarm set for 4.30am
Signed on at 6.30am and we where off at 7am in the rain. Straight up the Glen river and up Donard in a record time for me. Up Commedagh then down onto the Brandy pad and the rain had now stopped. Quick bite to eat at Hares Gap and it was up Bearnagh as usual it was a slow hard slog. Legs started to feel it on Meelmore and Meelbeg but we were making good time. Straight of the side of Meelbeg and across the bog to Ben Crom. Thankfully it was not as bad as I expected it to be. We made the Ben Crom check point at 1.45pm 45mins before the 2.30pm cut off.

It was then straight up Binnian and legs were now really feeling it and the pace was a slow plod. On the descent I was having pain in my left knee which slowed things big time. Then onto Lamagan and it saved a special sort of kicking for me in the way only Lamagan can. It was then a slow plod back to Newcastle in the heavy rain finishing just before 9am.

We had done it! after may years of talking about It. Great event and very well run.

Lots of lessons learned for next year!!!!

September could possibly work better for me also :)

I think this one is going to have to be postponed until September. I took myself off to Donegal for a week and will need another week to recover!

Alas, I'm unavailable on both weekends now, life has struck again. That said, I'm still keen to get the kids out so I'd consider trying for another date in Sep.

Thanks,

Am really nervous, keep checking on the weather forecasts in a hope of finding a more positive one. Cant see me getting much sleep on Friday night.

Hope you have a good event. Thanks for the advice. Look forward to hearing how you get on.

Good luck on Saturday if you are still doing this!
I will be doing it myself for the second time this year. I done it back in June for Cancer Focus NI.
Funny though, no matter how many times I do it, it never gets easier and I still always feel really anxious about it beforehand!
