Introduction to Trail Running Videos: Journey to EcoTrail Wicklow

Wicklow County Tourism with the support of Failte Ireland has commissioned a series of videos to showcase the sport of Trail Running.

The videos follow journalist and first-time trail runner, Siobhan O’Connor, on her journey to THE EcoTrail Wicklow event that will take place on the 24th September.

Siobhan stated: “There was a genuine apprehension when I accepted to sign up for EcoTrail Wicklow. But after the various shoots, I realised that trail running is very different than road running, and it’s ok to combine walking and jogging along the route. The focus is very much on enjoying the journey rather than the finish-line. Trail Running offers a fantastic workout, in stunning sceneries:  who needs a gym?”
