We will be keeping the best bits of last year’s route, with a few tweaks to take out the really muddy bits. WTL 2018 will have a loop route again this year, starting and finishing at the GlenCullen Adventure Park (the GAP), near Johnny Fox’s Pub. There are two route options, 11 and 22km (approx) depending on your fitness and enthusiasm. The 2018 routes are below and will are largely the same as WTL 2017 with the only changes at the start and finish.

The 2018 route description
The route (Long is 22Km, Short is 11Km)
Starting at the Glencullen Adventure Park (the GAP) course you go straight onto the hill following the pedestrian track to avoid the mountian bikers. once in the woods and onto the Dublin way you 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 GAP. The longer route continues from Three rock woods over 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 2018 GPX track of routes below. These have been tweaked to account for tree felling and to avoid some of the really nasty bits near the woods down from Fairy castle.
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.
