Organised by Excel Sports, this is the 5th Anniversary of the Seven Sisters Skyline Event.
The event race route runs along the top of all of the Seven Sisters in the Derryveagh mountains from Errigal to Muckish. The course is renowned for its variability in terrain and amazing beauty. The 55km with 4,000m ascent event is regarded as the toughest in Ireland.
