The Glendalough Clover Relay is a three leg relay race covering 80 km of mountain trails over three ‘out & back’ loops. The race takes place in the Glendalough Valley and will be run along the way-marked trails of St Kevin’s Way, the Spink and The Wicklow Way. The course will be fully marked by use of St Kevin’s Way signage and Wicklow Way signage. Some additional markings may be added at the organiser’s discretion, but the way mark posts of the existing trails are considered sufficient for navigation. The total route is approximately 80km in distance, with a total climb in the region of 3,000m.
The start, finish & leg changeover area will be situated beside the Upper Lake Car-park in the Glendalough Valley.
Three water stations will be located at each turn-around point on the route, i.e. at the Wicklow Gap, at Lough Dan, and at Glenmalure.

You need to have done 2 non-running volunteer roles in a calendar year to qualify for end of year prize
Check with race director if they have a need for people volunteering and running. Race directors need a minimum number of people available throughout the race to make the race work so non-running volunteers are preferable. While it can be helpful, volunteering in a volunteer and race capacity does not count towards qualifying for end of year prize
