Your backstage pass to the Emerald Isle!
This all-inclusive running adventure will take you off the beaten path to discover the beauty of Ireland.
Every day we will take you on a trail run through the lush forests and coastal trails of Ireland. These races are designed to challenge you, with the reward of stunning views along the way (Don't worry, we often slow down to take it all in). At the end, you'll earn a medal to celebrate!
The runs are topped off with daily meals and afternoon activities to explore the best of this rich historical countryside.
Vacation Races always treats you right, but Global Adventures takes it up a notch.
Apart from the awesome medal you'll get at the end of the week, you'll also get some great high quality gear and souvenirs that you'll cherish for years to come.
