Join Glendalough Lap of the Gap Marathon 2024

Irelands toughest road marathon!

Cyclists have long known the allure of the 'Lap of the Gap' circuit taking you from the village of Laragh to the highland pass of Sallygap and back past Lough Tay (the 'Guinness Lake'). A scenic route with plenty of ups and plenty of downs. From quiet country back lanes to the barren and dramatic heather landscapes once you pass the Glenmacnass Waterfall.

Both our marathon and half-marathon adds a 'tail' to the traditional Lap of the Gap to allow you to start in the monastic village of Glendalough - one of Ireland's most popular tourist destinations.

We hope you will get not just a race out of our event - but an experience for a lifetime.

Course highlights

A classical cycling route slightly re-done to add up to exactly 42.2 kilometres or the full marathon distance running clockwise up to Sally Gap via the Glenmacnass Waterfall before meandering past Lough Tay and returning via the Drummin/Oldbridge townland. 

To say the route is hilly is not doing it justice - its a marathon to run for the pure experience, the physical and mental challenge and the scenery rather than the personal best potential!

Domande Frequenti

When and where can I collect my BIB/race pack?

keyboard_arrow_down

All bibs ship no later than the Monday pre-race and arrive Tuesday-Wednesday to Irish and UK addresses. Bibs not received or those with non-Irish/UK addresses should collect their bibs Friday evening (6-8 pm) in Lynhams Hotel or Saturday morning in Glendalough Hotel from 6:30 am and no later than 20 minutes before your race starts.

Can someone collect my race pack for me?

keyboard_arrow_down

No, you must collect it yourself

How do I get to the race location?

keyboard_arrow_down

You can use public transport (Friday evening), take your own car, or purchase a ticket for the Saturday morning bus from Dublin city centre. A shuttle also runs from the Race Car Park in Laragh to the Glendalough Hotel (1200m from start line). Last bit you must cover on foot so leave the Glendalough Hotel 20 minutes prior to your race start

Can I change the distance after I purchase a ticket?

keyboard_arrow_down

yes, you can change distance down to half-marathon free of charge or pay an additional fee to upgrade to the full marathon.

What is the cancelation/refund policy for this event?

keyboard_arrow_down

You can receive a free refund within 24 hours. There is a strict no refund policy after this point but you can avail of a transfer to future years or transfer your ticket to a friend up until one week before the race. WorldsMarathons offer refundable tickets through Refundable.me but please note this has nothing to do with the race organiser (Glendalough AC)

What type of course is the race?

keyboard_arrow_down

It's a road race (on tarred surfaces) but through very hilly scenic roads in the National Park (so expect an adventure - not a PB!).

Can I have support on the course?

keyboard_arrow_down

No support is allowed outside of the official water/aid stations as support vehicle and bikes on the course would provide a hazard for traffic.

Why is the start so early? Are the roads closed?

keyboard_arrow_down

It is not possible currently to close the roads of the National Park for a race such as this, so you are sharing the road with other road users. For this reason we start the events early, so we can clear the busiest stretch of road (the first 3 km) as early in the day as possible. For this reason: - 8 am start for the marathon - 8:30 am start for the half-marathon
