W.W.U - Wicklow Way Ultra 50k - 26.03.11

Better late than never!!!
It´s been a while since the WWU, but here´s some photos and facts.

It was a 51k mountain run with 1940m of altitude gain. The race started at Johnny Foxes pub following the Wicklow Way to Ballinastoe and back to Johnny Foxes.



Approx 66 ultra-runners finished the WWU. I managed to finish it in 3rd place in my category (Men<40) in a time of 4hrs 51min 22sec. I came 10th in the overall results.

Gear I wore: Columbia Ravenous, Salomon compression EXO Calf, Salomon Tech Tee, Suunto T6.
During the race: I had about 6-8 Power Bar gels and about 1,5L of Nuun electrolyte hydration drink.
Post race: Power Bar Recovery drink
