Galway Hospice has launched a new virtual challenge to mark the 10th anniversary of its annual Croagh Patrick Climb.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this year’s Climb on 20th June has unfortunately been cancelled, but you can still take on the challenge from home.
Croagh Patrick is just under 800 metres high. For the virtual challenge, we have created four exercises that can help you get to the top, from your back garden.
Exercises include squats, lunges, climbing the stairs, and walking or running 2km, which are equal to 20metres each. You can choose to do a mix of these exercises or the same one 40 times.
Videos featuring local personalities demonstrating the exercises are available on Galway Hospice’s Facebook, including Galway Hurling legend Joe Connolly, Galway Camogie Captain Sarah Dervan, Galway Football Manager Pádraic Joyce and Connacht Rugby’s Jack Carty.
