A run along the rocky coastline of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way

Dingle Marathon & Half Marathon

Dingle, Ireland | Saturday, May 7, 2022 and Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022

A once-in-a-lifetime run along the Dingle Peninsula in the part of Ireland known as the Wild Atlantic Way, a tourism trail along the country’s western and southern coasts known for its rugged, soaring cliffs and spectacular bays. It’s been called Ireland’s most scenic marathon thanks to the stunning views as you run through the area known as Slea Head, passing by the famed crucifix along the road with the Blasket Islands off in the distance. The half marathon finishes in the small village of Dunquin, right in front of a local pub called Kruger’s Pub — where you can pause for a refreshment after the race, before you board the shuttle back to Dingle Town to welcome home the full marathoners.
