Based out of Kendal there are close to 2000 entrants so far with 8 Ajax travelling including Niall Ewen(pic), Nuala, Thomas Callery and the Kernan clan. There is also a strong Irish Juniors group travelling to what looks like a good set of maps of varying terrain.

July saw 6 Ajax in Switzerland at SOW 2006 Zermatt. Martin Flynn, Brendan O'Brien, John Casey, Marcus Geoghegan, Brid Higgins and Fiona O'Brien got to run in what must from the photos at least have been a terrific event. Photo is from day 3 Trockener Steg which seems to have been one of the highest. Photos are worth a look.

Not many Ajax competing this year but Andrew McCarthy did well to get into
the 2nd slot on the 24hr event with Tony Kiernan of Clonliffe.
Brendan O'Connor with Hazel Thompson of Setanta did the same in the 6hour. Lots of photos on the Setanta website.. doesn't look easy.
