The Connemarathon has truly become an International marathon. Participants travel from all over the world and a large number in particular come from France 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 2024.
The main Irish airports are in Dublin and Shannon, while Galway, Clifden, Oughterard and Delphi Resort are great places to stay. Bus transfers to the start line are from Galway, Oughterard, Clifden and Delphi Resort (more details and maps here). The race finish is at Maam Cross.
