Participation at a trail running event requires a certain level of autonomy and safety.  See below list of items that are either required or recommended to participate at EcoTrail Wicklow and other Trail Races:

  • Trail Running Shoes:
    Trail Running Shoes offer extra grip and protection when on uneven, lose or wet terrain.
  • Water Container:
    This is the first mandatory kit.  Choose soft flasks or hydration packs. Consider as well to bring a small cup for aid stations as NO BOTTLES OR CUP WILL BE GIVEN!

  • Hat/Cap:
