Number of Places : 400

The Run Galway Bay Marathon is part of the Run Galway Bay event which describes itself as "breathtaking, amazing, spectacular, friendly and fun". It frequently receives excellent feedback, boasting a course that straddles the quaint Latin Quarter of Galway City, the famous Claddagh Quay and the stunningly scenic coast road with views across the Atlantic waters of Galway Bay.

There is also a half marathon as well as a 10k race.

Run Galway Bay Marathon Route
The marathon starts on Nimo's Pier at the Claddagh. From there, runners follow two laps around 'South Park' before running along the closed road through the heart of Salthill as far as the Barna Road junction, continuing on along the back of the Golf Club and the promenade back to the Claddagh. Nearing the end of the race there is another three laps of Salthill before runners head back to the finish at the Claddagh.

The course is very flat and fast, so is ideal for runners looking to make a PB attempt.
