DO you fancy a run to Hell Mountain? This 10km adventure run is like none other you'll have completed before. Hell Mountain will take place on Saturday, October 26, in the hills over Portmagee village on the south Kerry coast.

Dubbed as a true endurance test, this Bank Holiday Saturday adventure is sure to get your heart pumping and adrenaline racing. The track is full of surprise obstacles, hurdles and challenges that will keep your mind alert.

This is the inaugural year of Hell Mountain in Kerry. "Events like these are increasing in popularity in Ireland and there's no better place to have it than Portmagee. We've the ideal terrain and gorgeous scenery to match," said Gerard O'Sullivan, one of the organisers for Hell Mountain.

You're sure to get dirty and wet as you combat obstacles in running, climbing, jumping, and crawling. Upon crossing the finish line you will have been down to Hell, given the Devil a high five and since returned to earth.

"It's a great fitness test and an ideal for companies, businesses and teams like GAA clubs to get together and train," added Gerard.

The cost to enter the event is €35 however, the first 300 participants to register will benefit from an early bird rate of only €30.

Teams can also enter for €120 and should consist of four people. To register for Hell Mountain, visit
