AON 2022 registration will open on November 11th, 2021

Please read the following information carefully.

This page outlines the registration and entry process for the Art O'Neill Challenge. The Challenge is limited, for conservation and safety reasons, to 200 participants. The Challenge usually receives far more registrations than there are places in the event. Places in the event are offered, drawn by lottery, from the registrations received each year. The organisers reserve 20 places in the event. These places are offered to the first three male and female finishers from the previous year, and to people who have provided vital services, without which the event could not run. The remaining 180 places are offered at random. Please read the following:

  • The entry fee for the event is €140, which is payable by credit card on receipt of an offer.

  • Offers of places are strictly time-limited. Payment must be received before the deadline to confirm a place in the event.

  • Places are not transferable. For safety reasons, only the person who is offered a place may participate in the event.

  • Duplicate entries are not permitted. Any breach of this rule will result in disqualification, with all offending registrations being removed.

  • Group entries are permitted, up to a maximum size of four.

  • If some members of a group are unable to accept offers, unconfirmed entries will be offered at random to other registrants.

  • Participants will be offered places by email. Please ensure that your email address is correct, and that it's monitored closely.

  • Once the deadline on an offer expires the place is forfeit.

  • Places that are unconfirmed after the initial draw will be offered, drawn at random, to other registrants.

The organisers of the event strive to be as fair as possible. Every effort is made to ensure that everyone who registers has an equal chance of getting a place in the event. If you have any questions about the registration and entry process, please get in touch.
