EcoTrail Wicklow 18km
September 26 @ 11:30 am - 4:30 pm
Ecotrail Wicklow is back on September 26th 2020! This is our entry race, and is the most widely accessible of all the Ecotrail Wicklow races. But don’t be fooled into thinking that you will miss out on a lot just because you picked the shortest distance!
Begin on the promenade at Bray seafront before climbing up the slopes of the coastal hill of Bray Head where you can look out across the Irish Sea. From here enter the Elizabethan Kilruddery Estate before a run up and around the Little Sugarloaf – a limestone mountain carved out by the ancient sea that once covered this area of the Irish coast.
Return to Bray Head via Belmont Demesne (Water station here after 11km) where you are greeted first by views over Dublin Bay and then by a true Irish welcome at the finish line!
The 18 km route almost entirely on hard-packed trails with 3 short sections of rocky trails and only 2 very short road sections as you cross between Bray Head and the Little Sugarloaf.
An outline map of the route is provided for general information only.
Please do not acces private sections of the route particularly in Kilruddery & Belmont Estates unless using their permitted public access routes.
