Half and Full Marathons on 4 different courses over 4 days
This is not just another running event, it’s more personal than that, the concept of this event is experiencing camaraderie, lasting friendships, amazing scenery and unequalled hospitality during this iconic 4 day running festival.
Witness the scenic Wild Atlantic Way, run a different route daily along rugged coastal roads in the unspoilt Inishowen Peninsula, home to Malin Head the most northerly point and steeped in scenery, history and tradition and experience the hospitality and warmth of both locals and organisers.
Whether medals are your thing or not you just can’t overlook the Quadrathon Medal, every finisher of this punishing 4 day event is a true winner and the medal is testimony to that ethos. We would argue that its in proportion to everything else about the event which is bigger and better.
A separate route each day – travelling over 104.8 mile of coastal roads around Inishowen 100 / Wild Atlantic Way scenic route. The routes are a mass of beautiful scenery and dotted with historical landmarks and small friendly towns and villages. The perfectly balanced choice of course each day and our added hospitality and care for runners are what make this event so Unique and a ell earned reputation of the “best of its kind in Ireland or Europe“, not our words but those of past participants testimonials which are indisputably the “proof of the pudding”.
