2021 Race UPDATE (25/8/21): All competitors have been emailed
Unfortunately we will not have access to Croagh Patrick mountain for this year’s race. The good news is that work has finally started on Croagh Patrick to build a path, preventing further erosion and to make it safer for everyone in the long term.
As we do not have access to Croagh Patrick we have put together a new route that will still be a challenge and as close as possible to the distances and elevation of the normal Gaelforce West course. This has now been updated in the route section of the website below.
