UPDATE: Top-4 things to know (Hi-res maps?)
Our inaugural EcoTrail Wicklow is drawing near! In this newsletter we want to invite you to read about the four ‘hottest’ topics to know about ahead of race day:
Sign-on and collection of race bib
Meet our aid stations!
Access to hi-res map
Will high resolution maps of the route be made available ahead of race day so I can recce the route?
East West Mapping have provided official maps for our four races:
- 18 km: download here
- 28 km: download here
- 45 km: download here
- 80 km: download here
note these are the 2019 versions. New versions will be uploaded in the final week if possible.
The best printed map that may be used for reference is that for "Wicklow East" as supplied by East West Mapping
Please do not attempt to run the sections passing through private lands at any time unless they are on agreed public access routes as this could lead to our race losing access to these sections.
Specifically, you must follow only the waymarked path through Kilruddery Estate / Belmont outside of race day and you must enter the Powerscourt Waterfall park only through the gate lodge (where you must pay admission fee).
When in doubt, please stay out thanks!
Will this not impact my preparation?
No. Wicklow EcoTrail is marked and marshalled in such a manner to ensure local competitors do not have any salient advantage over international competitors.
