Embrace the Wild Atlantic Way of life from anywhere in the world by running, walking or jogging part of this spectacular coastal route on a virtual mission.

Your progress will be tracked through our interactive map on iDonate, where people can donate in support of your efforts. There are a number of different routes to choose from along the coast of Counties: Donegal, Sligo/Leitrim, Mayo, Galway, Clare, Kerry or Cork.

Participants can choose to take part in this 6 week challenge as an individual, as part of a team or at your own pace.

Registration now closed but please email fundraising@croi.ie with any questions



The choice of routes available means that you take part on your own doorstep, and select the right challenge for you depending on your fitness level or how often you can get out and get active. For example:

  • If you are an individual that walks 1-2 times per week, the coast of Sligo/Leitrim would be best for you.
  • If you are an individual that walks most days of the week, then the Galway coast is a good choice for you.
  • If you would like to undertake the challenge as a team, then a longer routes such as the Galway to Cork mission would be an ideal TEAM CHALLENGE – a total of 1446km, for a team of 10 this would work out at an average of 24km per person, per week.

Each challenge is described in detail below. It tells you how long the challenge is and gives you a guide on how many kilometres you should walk every day in order to complete the challenge in 6 weeks.
