Join Newry City Marathon

Newry has long been a frontier town, guarding the land route from Dublin to Ulster through the ‘Gap of the North’, the pass between Slieve Gullion and the Carlingford hills, still followed by the main Dublin–Belfast road and railway. Its name derives from a yew tree (An tIúr) supposedly planted here by St Patrick. The opening of the Newry Canal in 1742, linking the town with the River Bann at Portadown, made Newry a busy trading port, exporting coal, linen and butter. Today, it’s a bustling shopping centre.

This will be the backdrop of the Newry City Marathon!!

Course Highlights

The marathon and half marathon started close to Newry Sports Centre and encompassed routes around the city itself, the Newry canal towpath and roads in and around Jerretspass and Poyntzpass.
