Welcome to the EcoTrail Challenge 2020. This is your chance to test yourself against key parts of the normal EcoTrail courses: in your own time, at your own pace, with your own friends but on the REAL EcoTrails!

The 54 km Challenge is the longest of our three Challenge Events. All events start and finish at the Band Stand at Bray seafront. In the 44 km Challenge you run over Bray Head through Belmont Demesne and over the Little and Great Sugarloaf mountains before entering Djouce Woods for a large loop before your return journey starts via the Wicklow Way.

Registration link and step by step details on how to complete the challenge to be released September 1st.

 

Background

With the postponement of this year’s event to 25th September 2021, we wanted to ensure all your hard work and training has not gone to waste and you can still get as near to a proper race experience as is possible under the current government restrictions on events in Ireland.

We have mapped out four courses for you over large parts of the existing EcoTrail routes where you can test your fitness, upload your results and have your result recorded against everyone else who takes on the challenge.

When, where and how long?

The Challenge will run from Saturday 19th September to Sunday 4th of October at midnight – one week before and one week after the original EcoTrail date.

Run the route of your choice at any time during these three weeks, upload your result via the dedicated RaceOne app and your results counts in the overall standings.
