Week’s 1 and two are both tough climbs, each measuring approx 5km. But the gradients average out around 5-6% with maximums slightly above 10%.

For week 3 “The Wall” must be overcome with gradients as bad as 20% it is no easy climb, but once over the steep 1km, the climb is much more gentle to the finish line.

In the final week a long 7k from the Limerick side of Gallows hill will be attacked. It starts off easy but slowly gets steeper and steeper towards the summit. It is a climb where going out too hard will cost you dearly near the top.

Overall, this is a great but testing series with a mixture of short steep climbs aswell as long steady drags!

*If it is wet for week 3, we will switch with week 4 as week 3 is too steep to tackle in the rain. This will be put up on facebook and on the day if it is changed.
