Students are encouraged to plan and prepare before they set off to complete either 25km (Bronze Award) or 50 km (Silver Award) in accordance with guidelines provided by Gaisce.  They will have to demonstrate the skills that they have learned in map reading, route planning, group safety and leadership amongst many other transferable skills in order to achieve their award.

The stunning scenery of the Cooley Peninsula is the perfect location to help inspire young adults to set and surpass new goals. We are inclusive of all groups and are very proud to have assisted a huge number of students achieve their award from across the country.
