24 June – Waterford Viking Marathon 2017

Waterford Viking Marathon 2017

The Waterford Viking Marathon takes place in the historic Viking city of Waterford with full, half or quarter and relay marathon options available.

This will be the fifth year of what is undoubtedly the southeast’s biggest and best running event. WVM is renowned for its music and entertainment along the route which makes for an electric atmosphere on the day.

Over ten live bands and DJs will assist in taking the runners along a musical 26.2 miles. This year the route will yet again take in many of the Viking city’s distinctive streets before heading out to the infamous seaside town of Tramore. The Regional Sports Centre on the Cork Road will then play host to the finish line which allows runners to enjoy an Olympic style lap of the track before being reunited with family and friends.

Enjoy a fun festival-like celebration at the stadium with more music, children’s entertainment and food vendors. All participants receive a medal, t-shirt and goodie bag on completion of the event and maybe even a famous Waterford Blaa…if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on one!

€25 – €100

Self catering accommodation at Seacliff Holiday Homes, Dunmore East is the perfect location for all events within County Waterford.
