FEARmanagh 2023

SAVE THE DATE:  Saturday 30 September, 2023

What better way to spend a Saturday morning than getting up close and personal with Fermanagh’s rugged and wild terrain. Immerse yourself in the Cuilcagh Lakelands Geopark as you cycle through quiet back roads that cut through this unique and spectacular limestone and sandstone landscape, formed 330 million years ago and more recently, carved out by Ireland’s icy past, they’re guaranteed to give you more ups than downs!

Then experience the wetter side of Fermanagh as you take to the water for 2 challenging Kilometres along Lough Erne’s rocky shores – and if the 304 metre near vertical climb to the top of the Magho Cliff Challenge doesn’t take your breath away, then maybe the panoramic view it offers at the top will! So in a county steeped in myth and folklore, are you ready to become a legend in your own time?

This unique event takes place within Cuilcagh Lakelands UNESCO Global Geopark.  The Geopark covers large swaths of public lands containing over 70 sites across West of counties Fermanagh and Cavan including Lough Navar Forest. The Geopark contains an abundance of unique, exceptional, and rich natural, built, and cultural heritage throughout and it is the role of our UNESCO Global Geopark to ensure that the areas outstanding geological heritage is used to support sustainable development by engaging with those who lie, work and visit the Geopark through conservation, education, community engagement and sustainable tourism.

Feel the FEAR and do it anyway!

FEARmanagh, is a fantastically well run event, everyone is so friendly and we have great banter with all competitors and volunteers. The routes 34km & 74km are very challenging, but it’s what makes this event unique. The Magho Cliff Challenge, part of this race is really tough, it is only 1km but is something everyone needs to do, or at least add to their bucket list.
