The Course

This course will be the most scenic route that you will come across anywhere in Ireland

The Course

So let us introduce you to our course that will take you from the Wild Atlantic way to the Wild Nephin wilderness and back.

Participants must complete a 2.5km run from the historic town of Newport along the Wild Atlantic way, followed by an 11km cycle into the Wild Nephin Wilderness Park. Then it’s a tough hill run on forest trail for 6.5km before cycling back to Newport and finishing off with a 2.5km run into the town.

This course will be the most scenic route that you will come across anywhere in Ireland. The wilderness run will be all on forestry track so as to protect our natural landscape and at the same time bringing you right to the edges of the largest wilderness area. This really is the jewel in Ireland’s crown of adventure locations.

This race is a perfect introduction for those wanting to maintain their fitness on the race calendar between GaelForce and Sea2Summit.
