Connemara International Marathon
Apr 23 all-day

The Connemara International Marathon is one of the world’s most scenic events, set in the dramatic scenery of the west of Ireland. growing in numbers each year from 73 runners to our sell out point, in excess of 3,000 runners. Connemarathon will take place on Sunday 23rd April 2017. We look forward to meeting you!

The event comprises of half, full and ultra (39.3 mile) marathons. Participants will enjoy some of Ireland’s most beautiful scenery as they meander through bogs, hills, lakes, and the twelve pins mountain range, rising up over the great expanse of Killary Lough, through the sleepy village of Leenane, around the Maam Turk Mountains and all the way up to Maam Cross.

The Connemarathon attracts runners and walkers from all over the world. In 2014 participants came from 28 countries to experience the stunning course. Our international participants enjoy a warm Irish welcome along with the sense of comradeship on the route and the unmistakable buzz of the day. No other sporting event gives people such a taste of Ireland and its highlights.
