There are plenty of reasons to be cheerful in 2011.  The snow has gone, the water has returned so it is now time to begin making those New Year resolutions.

We realise making a resolution can be easy but sticking to them can be hard so here are our top ways of kick starting the New Year.

Winter Race Series
Rostrevor, Castlewellan, Tollymore Forest Parks and Stormont Estate
Thursday Evenings

 For something a bit more energetic 26 Extreme invites you to banish your winter blues and take part in the Winter Race Series.  On these race nights competitors will don their head torches and with their fellow runners will light up the trails through the forests as they take part in these unique 10k off road runs.

Mountain Sojourns

Mountain Sojourns is offering a series of ways of getting active this winter.  Nordic Walking and Mountain Navigation Courses are just a few of the options available to get out in the fresh air.  

There are so many ways to make a great start to a great year!
