It is with regret that we are postponing our 2020 Irish 3/4 Marathon to next year – Sun 10th Oct 2021

This decision was not take lightly but given the latest guidelines from government, sporting bodies such as AAI & GAA (as we use their grounds for our Race HQ) and with due recognition of the concerns and well being of participants, event marshals and residents in the area, we feel this is the best decision to take at this stage

Your entry for the 2021 event will be transferable to anyone else you nominate for free up to 26th Sept 2021 which is 2 weeks before the event.

I’ve done a lot of events over the last few years including runs, cycles and adventure races and never have I given any feedback but I felt I had to after this one. I thoroughly enjoyed the race and the organisation and planning put in was second to none! From the parking to registration to the route and the finish line it was excellently organised! I couldn’t fault a thing! I will definitely be recommending it to anyone doing the marathon.
