If you missed out on Electric Picnic tickets this year and still wish to go – well then there is still a way to achieve them.
Tour De Picnic 2022 17km run or 80km cycle is your final chance to nab a golden ticket to the festival which sold out in under thirty minutes this year.
Funds raised by Tour De Picnickers will go towards three worthy charities this year – LauraLynn Children’s Hospice, Ronald McDonald House and ISPCC Childline.
Departing from Tallaght Stadium, the cyclists will head for the Blessington Greenway to meander through some of Ireland’s biggest dairy farms and the picturesque village of Brannockstown.
They’ll then make their way along the Barrow Blueway before reaching Stradbally. There will be some much-needed sustenance along the way too.
As for those lacing up their running shoes, their journey starts at Course town B&B and Country House, a dairy farm in Athy, Co Kildare.
The 17km run covers farmland and Coillte forests; passing through Oughvale Woods always a stand-out moment for runners as they take in the beautiful Irish countryside.
And there will a much-needed celebratory meal later on with cheeseburgers, grilled cheese sandwiches, ice cream and a massage, followed by weekend of incredible entertainment.
This year participants are required to raise €450 (including registration) for the NDC Tour De Picnic charities to take part in this exhilarating fundraising and fitness challenge, with their weekend pass to Ireland’s most popular music festival waiting for them at the finish line.
The stunning 80km cycle through some of Ireland’s best cycle ways will begin with a healthy breakfast party including Irish milk, yogurt, fruits and porridge held at Tallaght Stadium on the morning of September 2 to keep you energised as you push those peddles towards the Picnic.
There will be additional “Fuel stops” on the way to the Picnic where runners and cyclists can refuel with milkshakes, smoothies and other energy fuelling snacks along with water.
