Inishbofin Half Marathon


Saturday 17th of May 2008 A participant in last year’s event said “The food was incredible, the craic was mighty, the organisation was superb, the support and encouragement from the islanders and the Croi team was invaluable… it was another one of those brilliant, well run Croi events that keeps so many of us coming back for more year after year!”, this year’s Inishbofin Half-Marathon is set to sell out quickly! Set on the idyllic island of Inishbofin, a small but stunningly beautiful and tranquil island – the Jewel of Irish Islands! …a guaranteed weekend of fun and challenge awaits participants in the 3rd Annual Inishbofin Half-Marathon. The event is open to men and women over 18 years of age with walkers and runners equally welcome.
This event is offered as a weekend package, which includes 2-nights Bed & Breakfast and evening meals (Friday & Saturday), race entry, lunch on Sunday and return ferry transfers to and from Cleggan. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 10th, starting at 10.30 am. The route, which will utilise the main road around the island, offers stunning views from every side of the island and will be challenging! Uniquely, due to the narrow roads, this 13-mile run or walk is offered as a time-trial with runners/walkers starting in pairs at 30 second intervals. This adds to the excitement of the event, as the Winner is announced based on time analysis, rather than first home!

Places for this unique event are limited to 80 and are available strictly on a first-come, first-served basis.
