Celtic Traverse 2017

An Epic Running Adventure Across Ireland

The 2017 Celtic Traverse is an iconic, six day, running tour across Ireland and will take place on 18 – 25 June 2017. By day participants will run through some of the most remote parts of Ireland, in the evenings you will enjoy the fantastic hospitality that Ireland has to offer and by night you will stay in great hotel and self-catering accommodation.

For 2017 we are also pleased to announce the “Giants Causeway Trail Run” add-on. If you choose to arrive on Friday 16 June 2017 you can run a fantastic 15km trail run through the world famous Giants Causeway and finish in a regular Game of Thrones filming location (Ballintoy harbour) before joining the rest of the tour for another six days of running across Ireland. This add-on includes bus transfer from Dublin Airport to the Giants Causeway, two night’s accommodation and a trail run through the Giants Causeway and along the world famous Causeway Coastal Path.

Planned and staged by one of Ireland’s premier events companies, Primal Challenges (, we will ensure that your journey across Ireland will take you to places where few Irish people have even ventured. Expect deserted trails, breathtaking scenery and some of the best trails you have ever run across.

This is truly an adventure of a lifetime, on foot, across Ireland and one certainly not to be missed.
