It takes a great deal of organisation to run such a large scale event each year and we are grateful to the support from the Galway Radio Experimenters Club (GREC) who give of their time voluntarily and are key to communications on the day.

Hiking and Climbing in Connemara and the greater Clare & Galway area is made safer thanks to organisations such as the Galway Mountain Rescue Team (GMRT) who are a voluntary team of highly skilled individuals providing a 112/999 emergency response service to the upland and remote areas. Knowing such a skilled team is on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year should anything arise is something all mountain users should be grateful of.

Please support our fellow non-profit organisations. They keep us all safe on the hills throughout the year.
