Best runs in Mourne


Stretching across the rugged landscape of County Down in Northern Ireland, the Mourne Mountains captivate runners with their granite peaks, tranquil lakes, and sweeping vistas. As an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Mournes offer runners a challenging yet rewarding environment to explore. Running in the Mournes is a sensory experience, where the fresh mountain air mingles with the earthy scent of heather and moss, and the cries of red grouse echo across the valleys. The rugged terrain, with its steep ascents and descents, provides runners with a stimulating environment for their adventures. Traversing the network of footpaths and bridleways that crisscross the mountains, runners are treated to panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, from the shimmering waters of Carlingford Lough to the distant peaks of the Irish Sea. Each run unveils new vistas and hidden treasures, inviting exploration and discovery. As runners lose themselves in the timeless beauty of the Mournes, they become part of a landscape shaped by millennia of natural forces and human history. Here, amidst the ancient mountains and winding rivers, they find solace in the rhythm of their footsteps and a deep connection to the untamed beauty of the wilderness.
