WW2 From Solo Run

It says something when the shortest of the three events I have signed up for this season is likely to be Ironman Wales in September. Of the other two the Belfast 24-hour is the longest. However when it comes to the toughest I'm hoping certain that none will compare to the Wicklow Way Solo - 81 miles of up and down with a total elevation gain in excess of 13,000 feet - although in fairness the last 5km are flat, which allows for a speedy run-in to the finish - assuming you haven't thrashed your legs in the preceding 125 km (126 this year as Coillte added an extra km to detour around tree felling).
