Results & Photos of the Kerry Way Ultra - 1st & 2nd Sept 2023

The annual Kerry Way Ultra was held last weekend on the 1st & 2nd of Sept 2023 and going by the photos and videos, it looked amazing as usual.

According to the results, an impressive 77 runners managed to complete the full 200km course.

Top 3 men & women...

Ultra - Female - 10am Start
2 Nikki Arthur 27:16:56 Finish

In addition to the 200km ultra, there was the usual 'lite event' which does the last 58kms of the route. 'Lite' results HERE

A new welcome addition this year was the 'ultra nite' which does the last 101kms at night. This is an excellent stepping stone as it allows people to gain experience of running at night and navigating in the dark before they commit to the full 200km event. 'Nite' results HERE

1) The organisers have some finish line photos HERE
2) Valerie O'Sullivan does a great job covering this event every year and she has a gallery HERE

The organisers have together a series of videos which capture a flavour of the event and area.

I remember back in 2013 talking to the organisers about this event when they had a stand at the Maxi-Marathon event in Killarney. It was early days back then and hardly anyone knew about this new ultra  event and they were trying to get people interested.

It's come a long way since then and it's now one of the best ultra running events in the country.
