Glendalough Lap of the Gap Marathon
Saturday, 21 May 2022 07:00
Full Marathon, Half Marathon
The Glendalough Lap of the Gap Marathon on Saturday, 21 May 2022 is a scenic course with plenty of ups and downs through the heart of County Wicklow.
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 'Guinness 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 the 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.
