EcoTrail Wicklow, Ireland’s largest trail running event, is set to take place on Saturday September 24.
EcoTrail Wicklow is part of the eco-responsible international circuit of EcoTrail races in 13 destinations around the world.
The Wicklow event offers four distances (19k, 30k, 46k or 80k) following trails that run through some of Wicklow’s most scenic locations including Bray Seafront, Bray Head, Killruddery, the Great Sugarloaf, Powerscourt Waterfall, Djouce and the Wicklow Way, Lough Tay and Roundwood Reservoir.
In 2021, EcoTrail Wicklow sold out with more than 1,500 participants registered and organisers of the 2022 event are advising early booking.
Starting and finishing on Bray Promenade, the 2021 event was a great success and runners of all abilities crossed the finish line after achieving a great challenge around the spectacular Wicklow Mountains.
Cathaoirleach of Wicklow County Council, Cllr Shay Cullen, said: “EcoTrail Wicklow is a fantastic promotional tool that showcases the amazing playground that is Wicklow. Through the network of EcoTrail races around Europe and beyond, and with the support of Failte Ireland and Tourism Ireland, the international reach of our event is tremendous. Wicklow is very much ready and looking forward to welcoming trail runners and outdoor enthusiasts from around the world”.
