Con­na­ma­rathon, Ire­land

THE EX­PE­RI­ENCE

The Con­nemarathon is held in the wild majesty of (you guessed it) Con­nemara in the west of Ire­land. It be­gins along­side the shores of Lough Inagh (pic­tured here) and takes run­ners through some of the coun­try’s most dra­matic and beau­ti­ful scenery.

AND AF­TER­WARDS?

Gal­way is the near­est city. It has some of the best bars in the coun­try and great seafood restau­rants.

FAST FACT

In 2001, its first year, there were a mere 73 par­tic­i­pants. This time, more than 3,000 run­ners will tackle the var­i­ous dis­tances (half, full and ul­tra marathon).

RACE IT

The Con­nemarathon takes place on April 23. con­nemarathon.com
