Denis Rankin Round

Please note that the Denis Rankin Round is not affiliated with the Mourne 500. We include it on this site to show our support for it.

The Denis Rankin Round is a circuit of all the peaks in the Mourne mountains over 400m in height, covering over 86km (54 miles) in distance and over 6000m (20,000ft) in ascent. The challenge is to complete this within a 24 hour period.

The Round is named after Denis Rankin, a pioneer and leading light in fell running and mountain marathons in Northern Ireland since the 1970’s, who tragically died on 16th May 2013 competing in a fell race on Slievemoughanmore.

This challenge is open to all who believe they can circumnavigate the beautiful, rugged and demanding mountains of Mourne within 24 hours.
