EcoTrail Wicklow bigger and better with the support of Failte Ireland
EcoTrail Wicklow has been successful in securing the support of Failte Ireland for this year’s edition of the popular trail Running Race. The objective of the support is to grow the event into a weekend experience and attract more overseas visitors.
Starting and finishing at Bray Seafront, EcoTrail Wicklow will take place on September the 24th offering four different races (19k, 30k, 45k and 80k), through some of Wicklow’s most scenic locations.
Orla Carroll, Director of Product Development at Fáilte Ireland said “Fáilte Ireland is pleased to support the EcoTrail Wicklow race and would like to wish all athletes the best of luck for race day on 24th September. Investing in participative festivals like this not only attracts competitors from around Ireland and overseas, it also encourages families and supporters to stay and explore the local area, which in turn is beneficial for local businesses and drives the local economy. These events also showcase the fantastic outdoor activity offering we have in Ireland, and are hugely important as we drive recovery across the tourism sector”
