Virtual Croagh Patrick Climb

Virtual Event

Take on the 10th Annual Croagh Patrick Climb for Galway Hospice, from home!

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this year’s Climb on 20th June has unfortunately been cancelled. But you can still Climb for Hospice from your own back garden!

Croagh Patrick is just under 800 metres high. For our Virtual Challenge, we have created four exercises that can help you get to the top:

  • Lunges – 20 Lunges equals 20 Metres. Do 800 Lunges to reach 800 Metres!
  • Squats – 20 Squats equals 20 Metres. Do 800 Squats to reach 800 Metres!
  • Climbing Stairs (Up & Down) – 5 Times Up & Down equals 20 Metres. Do it 200 Times to reach 800 Metres!
  • Walk or Run – 2km equals 20 Metres. Do 80km to reach 800 Metres!

Choose a mix of these exercises or the same one to make up your 800 metres and climb to the top of Croagh Patrick from home

Watch Joe Connolly, Padraic Joyce, Sarah Dervan & Jack Carty demonstrating the exercises:
