What better way to spend a Saturday morning than getting up close and personal with Fermanagh’s rugged and wild terrain. Cycle through quiet back roads that cut through the limestone landscape, carved out by Ireland’s icy past, they’re guaranteed to give you more ups than downs!

Then experience the wetter side of Fermanagh as you take to the water for 2 challenging Kilometres along Lough Erne’s rocky shores - and if the 304 metre near vertical climb to the top of the Magho Cliff Challenge doesn’t take your breath away, then maybe the panoramic view it offers at the top will! So in a county steeped in myth and folklore, are you ready to become a legend in your own time?

Feel the FEAR and do it anyway!

Services Cup
FEAR is organised by Fermanagh & Omagh District Council in Partnership with seven of Fermanagh’s Emergency Services; Police Service Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service, North West Mountain Rescue Team, Royal National Lifeboat Institute, British Red Cross, St John Ambulance and the North Ireland Ambulance Service.

To acknowledge their role in the organisation of this event we will be running a ‘Service’s Trophy’ competition as part of the event. Please indicate on your entry form if you are a Police Officer, Firefighter or Ambulance personnel - including Airport and Harbour/Port Police and Fire Departments or a current member of one of the following agencies: British Red Cross, Order of Malta, St John Ambulance, Coastguard, Mountain Rescue, Royal National Lifeboat Institute or Other Voluntary Emergency Agencies. This competition is open all Emergency Service organisations regardless of jurisdiction and is only contested as part of the long race.

To be eligible for inclusion in the Service’s Trophy Competition organisations must have a minimum of three entrants in the Long Race and the best three combined times will decide the winning Service.
