Route Description:

This is an extension of the old course, and was used for the first time in the 2010 race. There are two variations from the old route (both out and back). The route no longer takes the off-Wicklow Way shortcut between Curtlestown and Crone woods, but instead remains on the Wicklow way (i.e. it takes the same route as the WW relay). Please also note that you must stick to the Wicklow Way when you are on it - no shortcuts are allowed. The turnaround point has been moved down to the lower Ballinastoe woods car park. These changes result in an increase in the length of the route to a little over 50km, and approximatly 200 metres of additional climb.

A Google Earth KML file of the route is available here. If you have Google Earth installed on your computer you can download this file and use it to explore the route.

Volunteers (Running)

Check with race director if they have a need for people volunteering and running. Race directors need a minimum number of people available throughout the race to make the race work so non-running volunteers are preferable. While it can be helpful, volunteering in a volunteer and race capacity does not count towards qualifying for end of year prize
