THE DONEGAL ATLANTIC WAY Ultra Race – a 555km cycle around Donegal – gets underway from Letterkenny tomorrow morning.
Competitors will leave the Mount Errigal Hotel at 10am and will follow a route into Inishowen going over Mamore Gap and will take in the Wild Atlantic Way through Knockalla, Atlantic Drive, Horn Head, Carrickfin, Glengesh Pass, Sliabh League and Barnesmore Gap – all within 60 hours!
The Time Allowance is 60 hours for all categories, with a cut off point in place at Creeslough (305km) at 12:00 on Saturday 25th June. This cut off is in place as a safety measure.
The race will finish back at the Mount Errigal Hotel.
Charlie Collins went along to the sign-in and spoke to competitors Joe Barr, Jason Black and Hugh Coll as well as race organisers Sean McFadden and Shaun Stewart.
