Road sections will not be closed during the race and participants must take care with traffic. 

Most of the trail is well maintain gravel, however some sections of forest trail may have uneven ground with trip hazards. It is the responsibility of the participant to take measures for their own safety. There are also steep hill sections of the race. Take great care on these sections. 

The route is an out-and-back route. You will encounter runners going in the opposite direction. We ask all participants to stay on the left hand side of the trail and be aware of their surroundings. For your own safety please do not wear headphones.  


Beginning at Barntown School, the race takes you up to the 1798 Battle Site Carpark, here runners transition to trail running and meet a steep 400m hill.

The first water station will be located here and supporter zone with music and coffee shop . Another kilometre on the road and you hit the trail again. This section leads you past Drooping Rock where the views of North Wexford are amazing.
