POLL: Wicklow Way Trail/Ultra Opinions

The latest poll closed with a solid majority preferring the new routes for the Trail/Ultra (5 out of 7) whilst two respondents kept a soft spot for the original Trail route like me.

At this stage my own opinion is that my original argument not to change a winning team should still stand. This year had a good event with the new routes, so it should be left at that. For myself and others still dreaming of the record falling on the old Trail, I suggest the route be brought back as a once-off stand-alone event in 2018 (the 20th anniversary of the route) and possible again for the 25th anniversary in 2023.
