Spectators are very welcome at the Connemarathon. One recommendation is that spectators walk the two miles to the top of the ‘hell of the west’ where support is most welcome by the weary runners and walkers… and runners who end up being walkers! Bring plenty of clothing, because, believe it or not, the weather can turn nasty in this beautiful place. There will be a selection of food stalls and vendors at the finish area so tea, coffee and cold drinks are never too far away.

Note: Road closures will be in place during the race.
