Wexford Half Marathon


We are delighted to announce the inaugural Wexford Half Marathon & Relay run. Yes, it’s time to get those runners out of the wardrobe, gather your friends and prepare yourself for the challenge on the 19th of April 2009. The run course has been chosen to take you on a Scenic and Varied loop around Wexford Town and surrounds.

Walk or Run the Wexford Half Marathon. Training advice will be available to help you fulfil your goals. If you are unsure about entering as an individual Half Marathon participant – why not enter a relay team? There will also be a Kids Fun Run on the Quays to make it a complete family day out.

Variety of Events: Run, Walk, Wheelchair or Relay (min 2, max 3 people in teams) options…

The Wexford Half Marathon is a single loop course taking in some of the finest sights Wexford Town and surrounds have to offer.

The course Starts in Ferrybank and Finishes along the Quays of Wexford Town.

Wexford Half Marathon & Relay aim to create a Premium race that gives people an Experience to remember. There will be a seated Grandstand for spectators before the finishers Gantry which will result in a long finish line full of cheering people to welcome you home. Behind the Gantry the athletes will have a chill area. The bag pick-up pen will have a marquee nearby for changing clothes. Food is available directly across the road in the Centenary Stores. The Car park is an eight min walk away. The Marquee will also be utilised for Kids entertainment (which is laid on) after their Fun run. We expect a carnival atmosphere on the Quays of Wexford.

We would like to thank our sponsors for their generous support.

Please note that entry is limited to the first 1,000 entries (relay or individual) for 2009.
