Wexford Half Marathon


Wexford Half Marathon & 10km is now open for the 21st April. In conjunction with DMP AC Wexford.

The Half marathon course has been breaking all records in 2012. Garret Doherty broke the Guinness World record for retro running (running backwards) covering the Half marathon distance. The survey post race statistics say it all. 80% of the participants achieved  a PB on the course. This is up from 58% in 2011 (when there were very stong winds). This is amazing for the Half distance which is one of the more common races around Ireland.

Wexford town is the PB course!  If you want a PB come to Wexford town….

– The New finish area in the Faythe went down really well and in 2013 we will have the post race soup & roll at the finish line adding to the atmosphere.  

– Half marathon participants run through the gardens of Johnstown Castle (a tourist icon of Co. Wexford)        

– Flat, shealtered roads with plenty of scenery to enjoy along the route 

We have a new EARLY BIRD offer for the Half.€35 until the 31st Jan. This includes bottled water on the course. A tech training top. A medal. Post race refreshments. A shower. Timing chip. After this it goes to €40.

There is a video of the course on the website to give you a taste of what to expect  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPgWTncBOlo&feature=plcp  
The survey results from the new course in 2012 are on the website
All told we look forward to welcoming new and previous participants to Wexford Town to break your PB.
