This will include the following.

  • Day 1 (Thursday August 19th) – Cycle the Ring of Kerry

  • Day 3 (Saturday August 21st) – Cycle from Killarney to the foot of Cnoc Na Tobair and then climb Cnoc Na Tobair

The committee are currently looking at ways other people can participate in an online version of the Challenge while representing and raising funds for their chosen charity, and they will be announcing details in the coming weeks via their website and social media.

The Challenge has raised almost €242,000 to date supporting a number of very deserving Kerry Charities. This year’s selected charity is Comfort for Chemo Kerry, when choosing this year’s charity the organisers contacted a past participant and a dear friend to us all Mairead Dunphy from Glencar who is currently on her own Journey with Cancer. We wanted to show our support to Mairead and knowing that she would like to support those who have supported her on her journey so far, she had already being looking at ideas to raise much needed funds for Comfort for Chemo Kerry. Little did we think that Mairead would be actually contemplating taken part in the event but in true style and testament to the person that she is, she will be one of the ten participants.
