The Galtee Challenge or full crossing has been organised by the Galtee Walking Club since 2005. This year the Club is also offering the option of doing a shorter version of the route (either self-navigated or guided).

The full Galtee Challenge is a 32km (1700m ascent) self-navigated hike across the Galtee Mountain range from Cahir to Anglesborough.

Participants of the shorter version of the Challenge can self navigate or opt to be part of a guided group. This walk will start at the Black Road and finish in Anglesborough, taking in the highest peaks of the Galtee range (18km 1200m ascent).

All participants will receive a certificate, a gift and a meal afterwards in the hall in Anglesborough.

Ticket price: 35 Euro (bus to the starting point is included). Refunds only in extenuating circumstances.
