Clew Bay Half Marathon, Louisburgh


Note: Manual entries will be accepted on the race day up 11.30am.  

The third annual Clew Bay half marathon will take place on Saturday July 13th 2013. The race will build on the success and positive feedback received from the second race held last August. The race will start and finish in Louisburgh in Co. Mayo on the south coast of Clew Bay. The course will be run over a variety of landscapes ranging from north Connemara bogland to winding seaside roadways overlooking Clare Island and south Clew Bay.

The course is challenging and exhilarating, it’s winding roads and ever changing scenery making it a very enjoyable run.
Ample car parking will be provided as well as hot shower facilities after the race. All contestants will receive a finishers medal (yes, promise!) and very popular home made refreshments, hot or cold drinks after the race. 

 Drink stations and toilet facilities will be provided along the route.

 There will be prizes for overall male and female winners as well as category prizes for male and female over 40 and over 50.
The half marathon will start at 12 noon.
Registration will cost €40 per person.

  1. Hi there,

    I am interested in doing the Clew bay half marathon but just wanted to make sure that the race is completely run on road before I sign up for it. I read in the description above that the landscape changes from bogland to seaside roads but does this also mean that the terrain changes?

    I would greatly appreciate if you could clear this up for me.

    Kind Regards,
