WLR Waterford Viking Marathon – Saturday 30 June 2018

WLR Waterford Viking Marathon

Venue: Waterford City

The WLR Waterford Viking Marathon is a series of endurance races that explore the beautiful city of Waterford.

There are three different routes available to those that wish to partake in the event for varying levels of fitness and running ability, the Quarter Marathon, the Half Marathon, and the Full Marathon.

All the courses feature some similarities, such as starting on The Mall in the heart of Waterford City, running across both the Rice Bridge, and the Thomas Francis Meagher Bridge, Ireland’s longest suspension bridge.

The half and full marathons both take in parts of the recently developed Waterford Greenway and Mount Congreve Gardens, and all the courses finish at the arena on the Waterford Institute of Technology campus.

All throughout there will be supporters to cheer the runners on, DJs playing music to entertain and distract them, and scores of volunteers looking after everyone who takes part to make sure that everyone has lots of fun and is safe along the run.

This is an excellent way to challenge yourself physically as well as seeing Waterford City and its environs in the glory of summer.

€25 – €65

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