Northern Ireland’s outdoors offer the perfect location to ‘Take on the Challenge’

Compete in a range of off-road marathons through some of the most spectacular scenery or take part in some lung busting adventure races.

All sound a bit too competitive? Then why not sign up for some of the excellent charity challenges including mountain walks, bike rides, abseils – the emphasis here is completion rather than competition.
