Following an amazing first edition, Ecotrail Wicklow is back on the 26th of September 2020. Choose from our four distances: 18k, 29k, 45k or 80k!
Join Ireland’s largest Trail Running event through some of Wicklow’s most scenic locations!
Trail runners from around the world will experience our amazing scenery, across a selection of challenging routes; 18km, 28km, 45km and 80km.
The trails will take participants to some of Wicklow’s most scenic locations including Bray Head, Killruddery Gardens, The Great Sugarloaf, Powerscourt Waterfall, the Wicklow Way, Lough Tay viewing point and Piers Gate and all the way to Roundwood and the Vartry Reservoir.
“This event will be a truly scenic feast” says Fred Verdier from Wicklow County Tourism. “Exclusive access to the world renowned Killruddery and Powerscourt Estates will very much enhance the experience for the participants. Any running enthusiast should have this event on their ‘must do’ list”.
While the long distances are probably for the experienced trail runners, the 18 and 28k routes are ideal for road runners that want to have a try at trail running.
Ecotrail was first organised in Paris ten years ago with the objective to connect the city with the outdoors with a stunning finish on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower. Ecotrail comes with a very strong eco-responsible ethos and each event is committed to reduce litter, minimise environmental impact and promote public transport. The Ecotrail concept has been recreated around various cities in Europe and is now held in Reykjavik, Oslo, Stockholm, Brussels, Geneva, Florence, Madrid and Funchal (Madeira).
“The concept of Ecotrail offers a truly international exposure and is ideal to promote the the Wicklow Outdoors brand” says Frank Curran, Chief Executive of Wicklow County Council. “The platform will give Wicklow twelve months on constant exposure through the various Ecotrail events held around Europe. Furthermore, the Eco-friendly concepts fits perfectly to our destination.”
“We are absolutely delighted to welcome Wicklow into the Ecotrail family” adds Jean Charles Perrin, Ecotrail founder and CEO of Ecotrail International. “Trail Running is one of the fastest-growing sport in the world, and Wicklow is a fantastic addition to our destinations. Having seen the beauty of Wicklow late last year, Ecotrail Wicklow might just become one of our most popular events.”
