The Coral Leisure Half Marathon &10km will take place on March 20th 2016 starting from the fantastic venue of Wicklow's Historic Gaol. This is the 6th year of this popular, scenic and atmospheric race. In 2013 we introduced a flatter half marathon which was very well received. We look forward to welcoming over 1,250 participants to the race in 2016.
The unique Finish area in the Courtyard of Wicklow’s Historic Gaol and the scenic Coastal course has been a big hit with runners and walkers from all over the country. To see a short video of race click here. Finishers will receive a bespoke Medal, a shower afterwards in the local Coral Leisure centre and refreshments in Wicklow Gaol. The race will also provide a quality Training top and a timing chip to record your walking or running time.
There is a dedicated walking section which starts 40 mins earlier for the Half Marathon to ensure everyone enjoys the atmospheric Finish area in the Courtyard of Wicklow’s Historic Gaol.
We wish you every success.
