STAGE 1: FOREST & MOUNTAIN TRAIL
The route starts at the carpark at Kippure Holiday Village and Estate, with a short flat 1km run. The route then leaves the estate, crossing a quiet country road, heading up Kippure mountain for a climb of 260 metres - approximately half-way up the mountain to 560m above sea level - and then loops back down the mountain. The trails are a mix of wide Coillte tracks and narrow soft turf tracks, with panoramic views and beautiful scenery.
STAGE 2: RIVERSIDE & PARKLAND TRAIL
After descending the mountain, it’s back to the Kippure Estate for a 5km loop run through the estate parklands and along the banks of the river Liffey and back to the finish line at the Kippure Estate carpark.
