After the challenge, you may feel in need of some TLC, and organisers are keen to show their appreciation to ensure that participants are well looked after.
Whether you run at top speed or stagger to the finish line, you get a medal, t-shirt, certificate and relaxing massage.

Participants and supporters can then opt for a buffet in the Breffni Arms, Arva, followed by live music and a disco.
