At 900 miles, 50,000 ft, the Pan Celtic Race 2021: Shorter Route is still an awesome adventure through Cornwall, Wales and Ireland that can be completed in less time, or riders can ride less per day.

Not everyone has the time to commit to a full distance self-supported event. Perhaps you’ve never done anything like this before and want to dip your toes in before going for the full-on dive. So here is the Pan Celtic Race 2021: Shorter Route, for those who feel less is often more. Make no mistake, this route will still stretch the most seasoned riders and prove a challenge for all. No matter your background or experience, you will need to do your training and preparation to ensure a successful ride.

The shorter route follows a lot of the same roads as the Full Route but leaves out certain sections. The same two ferry crossings are there to negotiate from Fishguard – Rosslare and Dublin – Holyhead.

GPX files will be uploaded in the future over the next few weeks. In the meantime, If you have any questions about the route, please get in touch and we’ll get straight back to you.
