Ultra draws big numbers
IN a busy weekend for off-road running, entry has long since closed for both the 52km and 26Km options at Saturday's Wicklow Way Ultra and Trail, starting from Glencullen.
Winners of the Ultra last year were Justin Maxwell in a record 4 hours 12 minutes and Donna McLoughlin in 5 hours 26 minutes.
A day later, the Dublin Urban Trail 4km and 8km in St Anne's Park, Raheny (10.0) offers a more gentle off-road challenge on a clever route through the park.
Later that morning, Bull Island is the venue for a Leinster Orienteering event (11.0).
