The 54321 Challenge

Teams of 5 People over 4 Days doing 3 Cycles and 2 Mountains for 1 Cause

This year will see the 54321 Challenge enter its 8th year and will take place between Thursday August 20th and Sunday August 23rd.

We hope to have eight teams of five people to take part in this epic challenge to raise much needed money to support three very deserving Kerry charities;  The Kerry Hospice, The Skellig Stars & Enable Ireland Kerry.
