Our mountains can be used for so much for the hardy among us – walking, climbing, camping, mountain-biking, kayaking and hillrunning.
Run the Line aims to cater for both the seasoned hill-runner and also those runners who want to give the hills a try – a choice of two routes, each with plenty of climbs and varied surfaces.
The participant will get to enjoy the views of Dublin City and the invigorating feeling of running through beautiful pine forests, all the while knowing that the mountain rescue team is at hand to cater for any eventuality. And the fact that you are raising funds for a vital service on top of that!
Entry fees are just €25 and additional fund raising is completely optional.
The Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team was set up to help people in need of assistance in the hills and mountains, and they cater for a broad range of recreational users of the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains. For the past three years they have successfully run a night and day time hikes over the mountains, to fund-raise for their life-saving activities. There is always a cadre of lean, hardy hill-runners who choose to do this event much faster than the majority, by running across the route. They decided that it might be worthwhile to run an event specifically for runners and so the idea for “Run the Line” was born.
