The Connemarathon has truly become an International marathon. In 2017 there were participants from 36 countries and a large number in particular from France who came to run the half, full and ultra marathons in this stunning part of the West of Ireland. This is a special place and we look forward to welcoming our overseas visitors again in 2018.
The main Irish airports are in Dublin and Shannon, while Galway, Maam Cross, Clifden, are Oughterard are great places to stay. Bus transfers to the start line are from Galway, Oughterard and Clifden (more details and maps here). Race headquarters are at Peacockes Hotel in Maam Cross, which is where all three race distances finish.
