This is a fully measured and AAI approved route. The 13 mile half marathon loop will begin at the Hy Breasal on St.Fionnans Road Achill Sound. Participants will begin by running to the top of St.Fionnans road where they will turn left and follow the quiet, lonely road through the villages of Shraheens, Derreens and Cloghmore. On this stretch of road runners will pass the ancient church and graveyard at Kildavnet & the remains of the 16th century Irish tower house that was once used by the legendary pirate queen Granuaile. The runners will then make a right turn at Cloghmore pier and continue on to the spectacular 'Atlantic Drive', overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the islands of Clare and Achill Beg. Listen to the crashing waves on the rocks below as you witness some of the most stunning & rugged coastline this beautiful island has to offer. This is a challenging route with plenty of elevation gain. Don't be put off - most will agree the scenery is equally as breathtaking as the climb! At the top of the Drive, runners will descend down the corkscrew road overlooking Ashleam Bay. Runners will turn left towards Doeega for a short out and back before turning back into Achill Sound to the start/finish area.
 
Half marathon runners will cross the finish line here.
 
Full marathon runners will run this loop twice to make a distance of 26.2 miles.

Road Race
Ultramarathon

Comprising of a Half Marathon, a Full Marathon and a 39.3 mile Ultra Marathon all taking place on the one day. Entry fee is €70.00(Euro). The 2016 event will take place on Sunday, April 10th.

The key to the event's success has been its ability to offer a unique package of experience. The popular sport of long-distance running is transformed for runners and walkers in the dramatic setting of mountains, glacier lakes, rugged green-brown landscape which winds in and around the challenging mountain wilderness of Galway in the west of Ireland. The course meanders past bogs, hills, lakes, and the Twelve Pin mountains rising up over the great expanse of Killary Lough, through the quiet village of Leenane, around the Maam Turk Mountains and all the way back up to Maam Cross. International participants enjoy the Irish welcome, the sense of comradeship on the lonely route and unmistakable buzz throughout the day. No other sporting event sends people away with such a taste of Ireland and all its highlights.

The addition of the 39 mile Ultra marathon launched in 2004 proved to be an enormous success. Ultra distance running is growing in popularity throughout the world on a scale not seen since the marathon boom in the early eighties.

Ultra Marathon (39.3 miles) 9:00am
Full Marathon (26.2 miles) 10:30am
