Event Description

10KM Trail Run Around Howth Head Summit
This 10km trail run route takes you from Howth village to Howth Hill Summit along rough tracks, grassy trails & sealed roads. 

Views To Keep You Interested
You will not have to worry about the boredom of long straight roads and dull scenery. You will be treated to sweeping views, making the climb worth every effort. 

Give Your Summer Training A Focus
Set yourself a goal, whether this is to be your first 10km or your fastest 10km, and get out there over the summer. 

Additional Information

Stage 1:
You will start at Howth Castle and make your way through Deer Park Golf Course. Once past the clubhouse you will begin to ascend Howth Hill. This terrain is steep and the track is narrow.

Stage 2:
Once you reach the upper part of the hill you will traverse the south side of the hill until you reach Windgate Road. Here you have a change of terrain to sealed road until you join the old railway track greenway. You follow this track to the end and then once again begin to ascend Howth Hill. Coming onto Greenhollows Quarry Road you finally make it to the summit.

Stage 3:
The route follows the trail back down the hill towards Deer Park Golf Course which you circumnavigate as you make your way to the finish line at the main club house.
