This May will be the 6th year of the Leenane Mountain Walking Festival which has become a major event on the events calendar for Connemara and the area. This year’s event will take place on from the 2nd – 4th May – May bank Holiday. This great festival has been designed to suit all levels of walkers from casual low level walks to the more experienced! Each day there is a choice of at least 3 walks from Strenuous to low level and we have also added a guided cycle on both the Saturday & Sunday
The third Sunday in November, November the 16th, will see the sixth running of the Leenane 5 Mile. The event is open to all, from elite runners to joggers and walkers. The entry fee is 15 euro for an individual and 25 euro for a family. All monies raised go towards the upkeep of the Leenane/Maam Red Cross Ambulance. Registration is available online here, limited registration will also be available on the day. Pick up your race number in the Community Centre, Leenane, from 12noon onwards.
