UNICEF Ireland Wicklow Way Relay 2012

Please note that this event has been CANCELLED

UNICEF Ireland are delighted to announce that their first ever trek – the UNICEF Ireland Wicklow Way Relay 2012- will take place over the weekend of Saturday the 8th and Sunday the 9th of September 2012. The challenge is to trek the famous 132km Wicklow Way from Clonegal Village in Carlow to Marlay Park in Rathfarnham in under 32 hours. A fantastic challenge!

Most people walk the Wicklow Way in 5 or 6 days but UNICEF intend to do it in only 2. The aim is to complete the route at speed in a team’s relay race walking from Saturday morning right through to Sunday night when UNICEF will host a celebratory dinner for all the tired walkers. The minimum number for a team is 5, 4 walkers and 1 support driver, and UNICEF ask that each team raise a minimum sponsorship of €2,200 to support their work in the field.

UNICEF has saved more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organisation and will continue to work until a day when no child dies from a preventable cause.
