Like all our four race distances, our 45 km route begins on Bray harbour front. Leave behind the seaside promenade to tackle the steep climb to the iconic cross on Bray Head. Here you bid farewell to your views of the Irish Sea and turn towards the mountains proper.
You traverse mixed trails across the Little and Great Sugarloaf Mountains, passing through the scenic on-route to the Wicklow Way – a 132 km walking trail stretching south out of the Irish capital Dublin. Your journey home begins at the foot of the Powerscourt Waterfall and returns to Bray Head via Belmont Estate.
As you approach the finish line you will enjoy views across Dublin Bay before receiving a true Irish welcome at the finish line in Bray.
Please note that the current routes should be considered provisional.
Final routes will be posted once final discussions with stakeholders have been concluded but please do not access private sections of the route particularly in Kilruddery & Belmont Estates and Powerscourt Waterfall unless using their premitted public access routes
