A tough road ultra with the last 13 miles very hilly. You will hit a climb known as "The hell of the west" around mile 35. The name is apt with a tough 2 mile uphill slog. Local people line the hill cheering you on and giving you that little extra motivation when it's needed. The good part is when you summit you can almost see the finish line 2 miles distant, and it's all downhill. The scenery is magnificent for the full 39.3 miles and it's worth taking on the ultra distance to experience this alone. Be aware and come prepared, in Connemara you can get all four Irish seasons in one race...Sun, wind, rain and one time we even had snow. Magic! Put it on your bucket list, you won't regret it. I've completed it 6 times, 3 full and 3 ultra and I'll be back for more.
