Eco Trails race destined for Wicklow

Wicklow will become the 10th worldwide destination to host the prestigious international Eco Trails nature race event. The trails will take participants to some of Wicklow’s most scenic locations including Powerscourt Waterfall, Ireland’s highest at 121m.
On Saturday, September 28, Wicklow will welcome trail runners from around the world to experience Ireland’s landscape and scenery, across a selection of challenging routes: 17km, 28km, 42km and 80km, with this event starting and finishing on Bray seafront.
“This event will be a truly scenic feast.” says Fred Verdier from Wicklow County Tourism. “Exclusive access to the world-renowned Powerscourt and Kilruddery Estates will very much enhance the experience for the participants. Any running enthusiast should have this event on their ‘must do’ list”. Other scenery highlights on the course include Bray Head, The Great Sugarloaf, the Wicklow Way, Lough Tay viewing point and Piers Gate, Roundwood and the Vartry Reservoir.
Aoife O’Driscoll, marketing and communications manager, Powerscourt Estate, said: “We at Powerscourt Waterfall are excited to be part of this world-first for Ireland, which has enormous potential to highlight Wicklow and Ireland as a premier tourism and trail-running destination.”
