Done it myself a few years back. Its a tough but very enjoyable day out. Get into the hills as much as possible. Great people along the way.

Definitely give it a go, you are no madder than the rest of us. If you can do it with some like minded friends, that's great for morale and motivation.

Thanks Fred,

I am more than happy to drink from streams and can carry a sawyer water filter. I know its a huge day in the hills and the more I think about it the more I think I am mad!!!

Hi Andrew
I done this about 15 years ago. Its certainly a big day out and shouldn't be underestimated but definitely worth doing.  In my opinion the best training is walking up hills, concentrate on endurance rather than speed. If you dont like drinking from the streams you should think carefully about hydration. Having said that, much of the route is away from streams as I remember.
Good luck

Hi,

Well after years of thinking about it I've entered the Seven Sevens. Has anyone done this event before? Any advise on training and taking part?

Thanks.

Hi,

Was up on Commedagh on Sat and the OS grid ref for the pipe is J 343 284 and its very close to 720m contour line. Plenty of water flowing out of it and was very easy to spot when coming from Slieve Corragh side.

Anyone who is a regular hill walker will know that mountain weather conditions can change dramatically from one hour to the next.

For example, in just a few minutes a thunderstorm can roll in when the sky had previously been perfectly clear.

In just a few hours the temperature can drop from quite mild with the sun on your face, to temperatures that are below freezing with rain, hailstones and squally winds.

The main differences in the climate of mountains are temperature and moisture.
