For 13 years, the Breffni Challenge was a run/walk/cycle from Cavan to Arva, via Ballinagh. There were 2 distances available, 20k or 13k, starting either at the MeadowView Inn, Cavan or Moore’s Spar, Ballinagh. in 2015, with the increase in traffic and for health and safety reasons, the committee took it upon themselves to change the event.
