LIST of IRISH INTERNATIONAL MOUNTAIN RUNNERS

Last updated on 10th June 2003

The first International races were held between the then Irish Hill Running Association and the Northern Irish Fell Running Association which alternated venues between the Republic and Northern Ireland. These races were followed by the International Snowdon Race in which Ireland's Robin Bryson - a former Matterhorn race winner - still holds the record to the summit (1985). The Snowdon race was won by John Lenihan in 1989. Invitations to the World Cup followed (See Background in the Home Page). European Championship participation started in 1996 when Snowdon was the venue. (Picture of Irish Women's team at Snowdon). While the list does not include international vests won at underage competitions such as the British & Irish Junior Internationals, it does include Junior vest won for the Worlds.
