20th Autumn Challenge Westport October 2018

The 20th Annual Autumn Challenge
October 19/20/21, 2018
Hotel Westport, Westport, Co Mayo

First, let me thank those of you who have previously attended our Challenge Weekends and welcome those considering supporting us for the first time. Our upcoming Autumn Challenge Weekend is aimed at assisting visually impaired people and other charities and allows participants the opportunity to experience the outdoors while helping a good cause.

The 20th Autumn Challenge Weekend will be based in 4*, Hotel Westport, which is conveniently and scenically located within easy walking distance of Westport town centre – generally regarded as Ireland’s most attractive town. For 2018, we are offering a choice of guided walks through the magnificent Mayo countryside that cater for all fitness levels.

Walks on offer include: an ascent of Mweelrea (the highest in Connaught); a circuit of the challenging Glendahurk Horseshoe in the Nephin Mountains; a chance to complete the Tochar Phádraig Pilgrim Path or an easy nature walk with an expert in natural heritage.

This weekend will be organised by mountain climber and hillwalker John G O’Dwyer, who has long experience of leading walking groups both in Ireland and abroad. He is ably supported by Josephine Tobin, Dan Condren, Ray Creaney and Jimmy Duggan, Brid Ryan Bourke and Tina Bourke all of whom have much experience of leading walks at challenge events.

The cost is €199 (per person sharing) for the weekend including accommodation and breakfast on Friday and Saturday with gala dinner and entertainment on Saturday along with use of the hotel’s spa and swimming pool. The number of places available, this year, is unfortunately limited but an immediate deposit of €60 will secure your place.
So, please try to reserve the above weekend for a most enjoyable and social autumn outing. For sponsorship cards and further information please contact me as below.

All best regards and looking forward to hearing from you shortly.
