Wild Atlantic Ultra

50 Mile and Marathon, Louisburgh Co. Mayo

23 May 2020

In absolute awe of the course. Very beautiful scenery and very good roads. Couldn’t ask for a better ultra route. The organisation was brilliant with a team member to direct me at every turn aswell as regular food and water stops every 5km of so, not to mention the 2 lovely ladies who helped me finish the race. I’ll definitely be back next year to do it all again. Highly recommend this race if you are considering a marathon or an ultra. James Donaldson
