10 (Extreme) - Extreme, >1,000M ascent or > 30Km
- Route not marked
Starting from Cronin's Yard the race will climb gradually through Hag's Glen until almost the bottom of the Devil's Ladder, here the route bears left (the only part of the course marked), and find the Zigzag path to take up on steep uphill singletrack and emerge close to the summit of Cnoc Na Toinne. Bear right and run the ridge, dropping into the col between it and Carrauntohill. From here head straight to the summit of Carrauntohill and return via same route.
Ps: a cut off time of 1 hour 15min will be imposed at the top of the Zigzag Path. If you have not reached it by then, turn back as race will take you much over 4 hours.

You need to have done 2 non-running volunteer roles in a calendar year to qualify for Leinster League finisher's 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 Leinster League finisher prize
