Maam Cross, Co Galway
Not long until April 1st!
Thanks for a great day on Sunday, really enjoyable and very well organized. Overall the organisers did one hell of a job in organising this great event and as far as I'm concerned it was a fantastic day and I'll definitely be back.
Just have to let you know, what a great day we had today. Well done. Really enjoyed the marathon well organised. Even the weather how did you do it. It was a great day.
Ray and team, Thanks for a fantastic event once again on Sunday. The organisation was super once again and you even managed to arrange the first real sunny day of the year for us!
Road ClosureFri, 20/03/2009
Galway County Council has made an order closing a section of the R336 between Leenane and Maam Cross from 11.00a.m. to 3.30p.m.
The Connmemara Marathon will take place on 22nd March 2009 and would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused. The event brings a significant amount of tourism revenue to the area and is supported by Fáilte Ireland. In consultation with the Race organisers the Gardaí have drawn up a full traffic management plan with the safety of the participants in mind. The event has grown in popularity with the support of the local community and businesses. The roads will be open to all emergency vehicles for the duration.
Race Director Ray O'Connor would particularly like to thank the Gardai, Galway County Council and Failte Ireland West for making this happen. Sincere Thanks!
