Are you ready to test your fitness by running through the rocky terrain and hills of the Wicklow Mountains? You’ve come to the right place! Sign up for the Wicklow Mountains Challenge and prove to yourself you can do it while also raising much needed funds for people living with EB.
The event comprises of a half marathon or a 10km with participants enjoying some of Ireland’s most stunning scenery as they run through mountains, bogs and rivers. Starting high on the Wicklow Gap you will run into Glendalough Valley passing old mining works along the route. A short climb onto the Brockagh Mountain with a fantastic view of the Glendalough Valley and then onto the finish line.
