Over 100 people will take to the start line of the 127km ultramarathon which kicks off at midnight on Friday 8 June. The race starts from Clonegal, Co Carlow travelling through the Wicklow Mountains and finishes up in Marley Park on Saturday evening. The route includes 3000m of ascent and is fully marked. It is part of IMRA’s Long Distance Championship.
