Route Description:

The Glendalough Tucker Trail is an 80km mountain run based on three ‘out & back’ loops. The race is centered on the Glendalough Valley and will be run along the way-marked trails of St Kevin’s Way, the Spink and the Wicklow Way.

The course will use the St Kevin’s Way signage and Wicklow Way signage. Some additional markings may be added at the organiser’s discretion, but the way mark posts of the existing trails are considered sufficient for navigation.

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
