Informazioni Glendalough 'Lap of the Gap' Marathon

Irelands toughest 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.

A classical cycling route slightly re-done to add up to exactly 42.2ish 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!

Glendalough 'Lap of the Gap' Marathon Costo dei biglietti: €35,00 - €45,00
