THE KIPPURE 10KM TRAIL RUN
Start your 10km run in the lovely surrounds of the Kippure Holiday Village and Estate in their new car park.
Starting at the new carpark at Kippure (300 metres above sea level) you will have a short flat run under 1km, This will set you up very well for your ascent. The route then leaves the Kippure estate where you will cross a quite country road road and head up the Kippure mountain. There is a climb of 260 metres to 560metres above sea level which is approx half way up the mountain, then you will loop back down the mountain. The trails are a mix of wide Coillte tracks and narrow soft turf tracks. The scenery is panoramic and beautiful.
After descending the mountain you will return to the Kippure Estate where you will do just over 5km loop run of the estate. A large section of this will be along the banks of the Liffey. The new tracks are perfect for running on.
