The Wicklow Way Course has plenty of downhill sections to match the tough climbs.
There is a fantastic mixture of terrain. Plateaus, very fast flat, fast technical trail, fun fast downhill and a scenic uphill.
All the terrain needed for a great Trail Race
The course is very challenging but makes up for it with scenic routes, short stretches of cross-country and rugged trails. These courses, while challenging, are intended to provide a sense of accomplishment among all who enter. This course has steep sustained climbs that will force all participants to speed-hike or walk.
You are rewarded with a downhill finish overlooking Dublin City.

The Wicklow Way is a National Waymarked Trail and is marked by permanent national trail marker posts. Look out for the little Yellow Man.
In addition to the fixed markers as above, the course will also be marked with reflective red, white and silver tape and marker arrows.
It is always possible that course markers may be removed or vandalised, in which case runners may well need to use the National Trail marker posts and maps as the guide.
It is the runners responsibility to navigate the course successfully, with or without course markings. We strongly recommend that you take the time to recce the route before race day & carrying a map and compass are highly recommended for the event in case of an emergency.
100 mile runners are permitted pacers from mile 50 aid station at Shielstown Forest Entrance. Pacers must travel on foot only. Runners are permitted multiple pacers throughout the last 49 miles but only one may travel with the runner at any one time.
50 Mile Runners are permitted to have pacers from Crone Wood Aid Station.
Runners are allowed to have a crew. We encourage runners to have a crew when available. This a tough course and a helping hand can make a massive difference on race day.
There will be a dedicated team of race medics available throughout the duration of the weekend. If you suffer an injury or accident that warrants direct medical attention, the medics will be on hand to provide you with exactly that. Due to the nature of the course ie. some off road, the medics may take some time to reach you, or potentially be out of contact tending to other runners. In those instances you should contact the emergency services on 999. If you are injured but able to walk, please make your way to the nearest aid station where there will either be a medic, or an aid station captain will immediately get in touch with medical care should you require it/ arrange for transport out. If you suffer a severe injury or encounter someone in serious difficulty please call both 999 for emergency ambulance services and the course medics.
The weather in December is extremely variable and can include anything from snow to heavy rain or bright sunshine. Be prepared for all conditions.
