Full Marathon


The Marathon is split into six laps; two short laps, followed by four full laps as detailed below.

Starting at the Claddagh, run along Grattan Rd as far as the Promenade Road and turn back along the path before commencing the your second short lap. Four full laps follow; a full lap consists of following the closed road through the heart of Salthill as far as the Barna Rd junction, then return via the back of the Golf Club and along the promenade back to the Claddagh.

This is a very fast and flat course and perfect for PB attempts.

The race is chip timed from start line to finish line. This means you will not lose out by starting towards the back


Your race number will be posted to you before the event. There will not be a bag drop.

The Marathon will start at 8:30am. There will be a water station at mile 1, 2, 5, 8, 11, 14, 17, 20, 23 and at the finish. There will be post-race refreshments available at the finish line.

If you have any further questions or queries regarding start times, location, how to get to the race, the event day schedule or anything in between, please check Event Info or the FAQ page.
