Glendalough Lap of the Gap Marathon and 1/2 marathon
May 20 at 7:30 am - 3:00 pm€50
GLENDALOUGH LAP OF THE GAP
A marathon through the scenic heart of County Wicklow starting in Glendalough and taking in the ‘Sally Gap’. Plenty of hills are repaid with plenty of scenery and a warm Wicklow welcome!
Cyclists have long known the allure of the ‘Lap of the Gap’ circuit taking you from the village of Laragh to the highland pass of Sallygap and back past Lough Tay (the ‘Guiness Lake’). A scenic route with plenty of ups and plenty of downs. From quiet country back lanes to the barren and dramatic heather landscapes once you pass the Glenmacnass Waterfall. Both our marathon and half-marathon adds a ‘tail’ to the traditional Lap of the Gap to allow you to start in the monastic village of Glendalough – one of Ireland’s most popular tourist destinations.
We hope you will get not just a race out of our event – but an experience for a lifetime.
Please note we have strict limits to how many runners we can allow on the roads of the National Park so we may sell out ahead of the day – best sign-up early to avoid disappointment!
There will be prizes for top-3 men and women and the first finisher in each of the following categories: over-40, over-50, over-60, over-70 and so on.
