The BMW Club’s Boreen Runs have always been centered around areas of amazing natural beauty, over the years the run has brought participants through some of the most scenic areas in Ireland.
While you can expect to be in the saddle for a lot of both days, apart from Lunch there are also short breaks either at scenic areas with toilet facilities or near a cafe for a fast cuppa, these comforts stops will allow you to stretch your legs.
