On Friday 22nd June 2018, cyclists from all over Ireland, UK and Europe will line up in Letterkenny, Co.Donegal to take on the Donegal Atlantic Way Ultra Race and one of the ultimate endurance challenges on the island of Ireland.

The Donegal Atlantic Way Ultra Race route follows 555km of the Wild Atlantic Way around the rugged and beautiful coastline of Donegal. Competitors will depart Letterkenny and take on some of the most scenic roadways to be found anywhere in the World. The route takes you past Malin head, Mamore Gap, Knockalla, Atlantic Drive, Horn Head, Carrickfin, Glengesh Pass, Sliabh League and Barnesmore Gap.
