Marie Curie & Tiso launch Donard Challenge


Marie Curie Cancer Care and Graham Tiso Belfast The Outdoor specialist have teamed up together for the Slieve Donard 2010 Challenge on Saturday 18th Sept.

We are looking for teams and individuals from all aspects of business in Belfast to sign up for this event. It is a great opportunity for companies to use as a team building exercise, but more importantly an opportunity for business and charity to merge for a worthy cause.

This mountain challenge provides walkers with a spectacular view of the coast and as far as Belfast. Running along the mountain’s southern and western shoulders, the Mourne Wall is the most prominent feature along this trek.

The climb is fairly easy, though the path is very eroded in places. Trekkers are able to ascend safely thanks to the laying of a stone pathway on the steepest parts of the route in recent years.

There are 2 route options, one more challenging which includes the summit or a moderate route around the mountain. No matter which you choose it will prove to be a good day out for all.

You can collect application forms from Graham Tiso, 12.14 Cornmarket, Belfast or by clicking on the link below.

Already signed up? Then come along to Tiso where our staff will make sure that you have all the right kit for your adventure. We’ve got everything you’ll need from boots to backpacks from great brands such as Rab, The North face, Scarpa, Haglofs and bridgeable.
