Marathon races in Ireland

Racing in Ireland

Ireland, known for its lush and vast green space, is no foreigner to the marathon. Some of the oldest and fastest race courses stretch across the Irish countryside and into its c ity limits. Fun and creative, many races revolve around community and charity. The Dingle Marathon, covering the outlands, is known as one of the most spectacularly beautiful runs in Europe, while the Cavan Christmas Dash takes place down the streets of Cavan town. From half marathons such as the famous Kinvara Rock and Road Half Marathon to ultras such as the Connemarathon, which has bragging rights of its own, marathons are a great way to get your green on and explore every inch of this incredibly beautiful and serene country.
