Note : We have changing the route some what for WTL 2017 . We will be out on the course this morning to assess any damage casues by storm Dorris and will updated the map in if necessary.
The 2017 route description – We are looking at a new Route which will keep the best bits of last year’s route, (views of the city) and involve a loop route rather than an out and back or bus transfer. These loops will 11 and 23km so you have options of two routes depending on your fitness and enthusiasm .
The 2017 route description
The route (Long is 22Km, Short is 12Km)
Starting at the Old Glencullen Golf course you go straight onto the hill and head north toward 3 rock mountain before dropping down towards the Blue light pub (no detours allowed). The short course route swings around by three rock woods and heads back up to Two rock and Fairy castle before descending back to the start finish at the Golf club. The longer route continues from Three rock woods over to towards Kilmashogue and down to Larch hill where the last lap cafe will be serving hot drinks. From here you head up onto Tibradden and back to the finish via fairy castle.
We have the Updated GPX track of routes here :
Please remember that with the GPX it is important to first ‘Download’ the file to a known location on your computer, “unzip” it. Then use a GPX compatible device and select the file to upload to the device. If anyone tries to ‘open’ the gpx file directly it will just appear as digital gibberish.
