The Wicklow Way must be followed as signposted, unless specifically listed below. Leg Descriptions are available but they are a little out of date so use as a guide only. When in doubt, look around you! Or post here. Also, no shortcuts are allowed and teams risk being disqualified if reported. Taking the shortcuts on the road on leg 3 and leg 6 will result in 2 minute time penalties.


  • Leg 8: Stay on the Wicklow Way running past until the Dying Cow. From here detour off the Wicklow Way to Kenny's Pub in Shillelagh (this will be marked)



Getting There:
Teams are responsible for their own logistics. Its worthwhile getting the official Wicklow Way maps to details.

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
