Challenge 44km


Welcome to the EcoTrail 2020 Wicklow Challenge.

We plan for this to be 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 many of our actual Wicklow Tails!

The 44 km Challenge is the longest of our three Wicklow Challenges. All 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 Sugarloaf before returning via a big loop of the Great Sugarloaf and Djouce woods.

Registration link and step by step details on how to complete the challenge to be released as soon as CV 19 restrictions permit.



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 trail running experience as is possible under the current government restrictions on events in Ireland.

We have mapped out 3 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 over a time period that can only be decided once CV 19 restrictions permit.

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