Thanks again for registering to take part in the Sperrins Challenge 2012. There are a few things we need to mention ahead of the walk.
Dogs are not permitted
Please note that, due to the Lambing Season, no dogs are permit on the hike. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
Protecting our environment – ‘Leave No Trace‘ approach
The organisers of the Sperrins Challenge are asking all participants to adopt a‘Leave No Trace’ approach and to leave the route of the hike in as good a condition, or better, than that in which they found it.
I have attached a link to Mountaineering Ireland’s recently adopted policy on Organised Events in Ireland’s Mountain Areas. This document includes practical guidelines for event organisers and also participants.
We hope that you will take a few minutes to consider how this policy and that you will take on board the positive spirit of the guidelines for the benefit of the mountains, the local community and other hillwalkers.
Should you require further information, please do not hesitate in getting in touch.
Thanks you in advance for your cooperation. Wishing you well for the Sperrins Challenge 2012!
Sperrins Challenge Organising Committee.
