Failte Ireland Gives Backing To EcoTrail Running Festival In Wicklow

EcoTrail Wicklow race day is scheduled for Saturday the 30th of September in Bray with start and finish on the Seafront. 

The support is dedicated to growing the festival atmosphere of the event and increase its awareness abroad and encourage international participation.

The event offers participants four distances to choose from, all going through stunning Wicklow scenery.

The 19k is a race for anyone who wants to have a go at Trail Running. 

The route takes runners over Bray Head, Killruddery, the Little Sugarloaf and Belmont Demesne. 

The 30km offers an added challenge and includes a loop around the iconic Big Sugarloaf. 

There are two Ultra Running distance options, with the 46km extending to Powerscourt Waterfall and the Wicklow Way. 

80km runners will follow the Wicklow Way to Lough Tay (or Guinness Lake) and a loop around the Vartry Reservoir, before working their way back to Bray.
