Virtual Mourne Skyline MTR
This will be known as #MyMTR2020.
This year, we made the heart-breaking decision to cancel the Mourne Skyline MTR just 3 days out from race day. This was for reasons beyond our control. Our race would be nothing without those who support us, year in, year out... therefore, we genuinely want to offer something positive, a challenge to motivate everyone to still get out there and run!
Here are the details:
It is ESSENTIAL that by participating in #MyMTR2020 you do not breach COVID-19 restrictions.
Between SATURDAY 17TH OCTOBER 2020 (00:00hrs) and SUNDAY 25TH OCTOBER 2020 (23:59hrs), those wishing to participate in #MyMTR2020 must cover 35k in distance (in one run) – this run must include 1,350m of accumulative ascent (3,370m - 2020 = 1,350m) and must be completed within 8 hours.
The participant must:
- Submit their run information (screenshot of Strava, Garmin etc) including distance, time, elevation;
- a photo / selfie (which you are happy for us to publish online);
- your full name and postal address...
before the deadline on Monday 26th October 2020 at 17:00hrs to MyMTR2020@gmail.com.
Why must I submit my postal address? Because, you never know, we may want to send you a surprise package if you complete the #MyMTR2020 challenge!
It is important to note that we can only send these packages to those who send ALL of the required information before the deadline, and to the email address listed above.
Disappointment Disclaimer: We appreciate that this is a weak alternative to the official Mourne Skyline MTR, but please understand that we are trying our best to get everyone involved in something positive, whilst also dealing with difficult circumstances ourselves. Let’s deal with this together! #BeKind #MyMTR2020
