Glendalough Challenge

With the postponement of the 5th Edition of Glendalough Lap of the Gap Marathon and Glen to Glen Half-marathon due to government restrictions, we are delighted to offer a chance to take on a similar challenge of your own making.

Join us over 5 km, 10 km, 1/2 marathon or the full marathon distance and run over your own course (or feel free to come down and run over the official courses under your own guidance).

This event will run over two weeks: run your course and upload your results any time between  June 18th and June 27th and you will be added to the results of the 'Glendalough Challenge'.

To stay true to the spirit of the event, we are offering a very special prize for the person who comes up with the 'course most true to the spirit of the real Lap of the Gap' - this means hard, scenic, hilly, and with some twists. To compete you must send us your course as an entrant into this 'pageant' (we will not automatically review all courses). 

The prize will be sponsored by the Wicklow Heather and is a special running focused treat - more details on this competition to follow in the coming weeks!

Entry fee is 10euro with an option to purchase event merchandise. (Merchandise will be posted out after the event in batches by date / size ordered)
