The Mourne Trail Marathon Buckle

£23.00

The Seven Sevens Buckle is a great way to celebrate finishing the Mourne Seven Sevens challenge, the challenge includes all the mountains over 700m in the high Mournes (technically there are only six but that story is for another).

In the world of Ultra running the buckle is the highest accolade that you can receive, as the story goes the Western State 100 mile foot race used to be a horse race. One of the riders horses took ill so he decided to complete the course by foot, not only did he go on to complete the course but he also beat quite a few of the horses in the race. When he crossed the finish line they didn’t know what to give the runner for completing the event soA they presented him with a rodeo buckle and both the 100 mile event and 100 mile race buckle were born. The Western State is now the oldest 100 mile race on the event schedule and the buckle is the pride and enjoy of many a runner.

Buckle £20 + £3.00 postage.
