This is a slightly shorter version of The Kerry Way Ultra, approx 58k, and will be run concurrently with the longer event. The UltraLite will be along the same lines as The Ultra – live tracking, self-sufficient with Crew Stops at Templenoe and Kenmare, emergency water only provided by the committee, no prize money but Participants Awards and No Trace Race principles applied. There will be a Mandatory Gear Check – waterproof jacket and trousers, hat, gloves, fully charged mobile phone (not on Airplane Mode), map or GPS of the route, spare food and water, survival (bivy, foil) bag and First Aid Kit. Gear Check will be before Registration and you will not be let register if you do not have all of the above, and there will be no sharing gear!!!

This event is due to a huge demand for a shorter version of The Kerry Way Ultra and is only possible thanks to the involvement of the local landowners, South Kerry Development Partnership and the Sneem Community!

As usual, contact Eileen on (087) 2731489 if you need details, information or encouragement. There will be details here about accommodation shortly. If you are not local, I would recommend that you stay in Sneem on Friday night. Bring the family!
