Irish Red Cross: Sunrise Summit Challenge – Trek Ireland’s Highest Peaks at Night on April 14th 2013 – 170213 1720z

The Irish Red Cross this week launched Sunrise Summit Challenge, a brand new charity adventure which will simultaneously take place at ten mountain locations across Ireland. The Sunrise Summit Challenge will see participants hike through the early morning darkness, of April 14th, reaching the mountain summits in time to witness the sun rise over Ireland.
The ten mountains, in Kerry, Wicklow, Tipperary, Mayo, Galway, Donegal, Waterford and Down, offer a range of exciting route types, suitable for every level of experience. From ambling treks through beautiful woodland to more challenging ascents of glacial corries and spectacular arêtes this challenge will appeal to everyone from seasoned adventurers to Sunday hikers. Each group will be guided by specially trained Irish Red Cross Mountain Guides, getting them safely through the darkness and up to the mountain peaks.

The Sunrise Summit Challenge offers a unique opportunity to take part in an unforgettable mountain adventure whilst also raising funds for the Irish Red Cross humanitarian work in Ireland and around the world.
