3 Distances

This is a point-to-point race along a scenic, unspoiled route. On Saturday June 16th 2018, it will bring you to rarely seen parts of the country. You can do this along the ultra (60km), marathon, or half-marathon distances.


No getting bored on a point-to-point course! As you will finish a good distance from the starting point, we will have food and showers at the finish - don’t forget a drop-bag! Buses will be waiting to return runners to the starting point in Carlow (optional).

Beautiful Route

If this is your first long-distance event, you’ll be happy with a very gentle course along a quiet, well supported route. If you’re a seasoned endurance runner, the course lends itself to quick times. And everyone can enjoy the breathtaking views!
