Unfortunately dogs are not permitted on the Sheep's Head Way due to the abundance of wildlife (sheep and goats!) on the peninsula and therefore will not be allowed at this event.

Check-in! : We will be asking all registered participants to check in online approximately two weeks from the event. The Check-in process will result in a simpler event experience for you by removing the usual on-the-day administration. Within the Check-in process, we will ask you to 1) Confirm your preferred postal address to enable your participant number to be posted out, and 2) Watch the mandatory event safety video.

Now the longest distance event in the Endurancelife collection, this one is not for the fainthearted! This new 46 Mile Ultra around the Sheep's Head Peninsula in the South of Ireland is sure to get hearts pumping.

Recognised as a European Destination of Excellence the Peninsula is remote, wild and unspoilt. The route follows the varied terrain of the Wild Atlantic Way and includes a daunting 2180m of elevation gain.

This Ultra Marathon represents a strenuous but fulfilling test for the ambitious trail runner - set in a beautiful, unspoilt and largely unfrequented location.
