The IMRA Maurice Mullins Ultra and Trail races 2016

Two races on the same course: one 25, one 50Kilometers. Starting at 9.30am on the road outside the Glencullen Golf course near Jonny foxes and heading south on the Wicklow way to Ballinastore woods and then back again for the 50km, with the 25km starting at the turnaround point at midday. This is an extension of the old course, and was used for the first time in the 2010 race. There are two variations from the old route (both out and back). The route no longer takes the off-Wicklow Way shortcut between Curtlestown and Crone woods, but instead remains on the Wicklow way (i.e. it takes the same route as the WW relay). The turnaround point has been moved down to the lower Ballinastoe woods car park. These changes result in an increase in the length of the route to a little over 50km, and approximatly 200 metres of additional climb.
