This race can be completed entirely on tracks of some sort however the distance at 36km is considerable and route finding could be tricky. The recommended map is the new Dublin & North Wicklow Mountains by East West mapping. Note some runners have managed to complete the course in 31.1km but to do this you will need to go over very rough ground and have good navigational skills

This race will have two cut-off times. 2.30 at check point at the start of bog road up to Kippure and 4.00 at same check point on way down from Kippure. This is standard practice in long distance races. These times are generously set at 200% of the winning time. Runners failing to meet first cut-off must turn back and those missing the second must take the car back to finish.
Accepting these cut-off times for the Dublin Peaks is a condition of entry. Cut-off times are necessary to.
Protect the safety of runners
To make the decision to call out a search for injured or lost runner more promptly
To reduce the time race officials spend in exposed and remote location

A basic kit will be required to be carried, irrespective of weather, and will be checked at start and check point Bog Road, failure to produce a jacket here will lead to disqualification. The kit will comprise of water/wind proof jacket (double top will not suffice), emergency food (gels, sweets etc) map or copy of route. There will be a water and feeding station at check point Bog Road and the facility to retire and get a lift back.
