Leagues:

Long Distance Championship

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.

Please note for 2016 – new start will be on the road outside the Glencullen Golf course – with a new finish off the road on the drive up to the golf course itself. So the finish will be PAST the old finish line.

Climb (m): 400

Distance (km): 7.30

Race Marking: Route fully marked

Route Description:

It starts on the new Sugarloaf way. It follows this through 2 gates (which will be open) for around 2km (1.8km) before turning left onto open mountain (all uphill). After a further short steep climb, the route follows the circumference of the mountain for a km or so (no significant climb) before taking a sharp left to the very steep climb to the summit. Runners going to and from the summit should stay on the left at all times. There will be marshalls and it will all be very clearly marked. Please be aware that the first 150m of descent is hazardous. Having left the summit the route continues downhill as if heading towards the main Sugarloaf car park. It then takes a left turn (clearly marked) to an open grassy descent, which lasts several hundred metres before being followed by more technical descending through growth. It then rejoins parts of the previous route, albeit by running in the opposite direction to last year. It finishes by coming back out on to the roadway that leads to the GAA club for a few hundred metres. Juniors (16-19) can run the full course. There will be a shorter course for under 16s, who will not go to the summit, but will instead turn for home after following the circumference.
