Begin the cycle with a loop of the scenic Atlantic Drive on the Rosguill Peninsula. Then follow Mulroy Bay towards Milford before meeting Lough Swilly at Rathmullan, passing the site of the Flight of the Earls (1607). From here competitors join the Wild Atlantic Way and begin their main challenge – the climb of Knockalla.  The effort brings reward at the top with sweeping views over Ballymastocker beach, voted 2nd most beautiful beach in the world. Competitors then head towards the famous Fanad Head Lighthouse, before following the Atlantic coast, crossing over the Mulroy Bridge and finishing again in Downings village.
