Lough Sheelin is a renowned fishing lake overlapping parts of Meath, Westmeath & Cavan. It is seven miles long and four miles across. The Challenge is to run (or walk) around the lake taking in some of the finest scenery in the Lakelands and Northeast. The event is being hosted by St Brigid’s Athletic club, based in Ballinacree near Oldcastle Co  Meath,  who provide sporting facilities to the young and old from all three counties.

The course of sixteen miles around the lake is ideal for walkers, joggers and aspiring marathon runners.It combines relatively flat sections to some challenging hills that offer magnificent views of the countryside. For the more leisurely participants there are four logical resting points, Finea, Crover, Mountnugent and an area near Ross Castle. The organisers have a dedicated group of members and volunteers to steward the route, provide refreshments and the logistics of catering for the needs of many hundreds of walkers and runners.

For serious runners looking forward to the Dublin City marathon, six weeks away, the sixteen mile run is the ideal preparation. Locally, however the runners from Cavan Meath and Westmeath will race to win the Challenge and “Claim Lough Sheelin” for their county.
