The team that organise the Dingle Marathon and Half Marathon have decided to put their efforts into a new event, the Run Kilkee Half Marathon and 10K. Similar to Dingle, they’ve selected another spectacular route for this event, Kilkee, the picturesque coastal town in Clare. These guys have won our “Half Marathon of the Year” Award for the last 3 years in a row, so you can be sure they’ll know how to put on a great event in Kilkee as well.
The race will take place along the spectacular Loop Head Peninsula in Co Clare on Saturday 14th July 2018. The course consists of a 13.1 mile Half Marathon and a 10km route set along the stunning sea cliff panoramic views of the Loop Head Peninsula. This is a ‘must do’ event in one of Ireland’s must beautiful locations on the Wild Atlantic Way with the course designed for runners and walkers to enjoy its breathtaking scenery and beautiful rugged coastline.
The event opened for registrations on Thursday this week, and by Friday registrations were already into the hundreds. With spaces limited for safety reasons for the first year, this is one to book sooner rather than later.
There will be a finishers medal and t-shirt, the design for these will be released soon. (But have a look at what they provide for Dingle, and you’ll get an idea of what they give!)
