Ireland's 1st ever Indoor Marathon will be held in Midleton, Co.Cork on Saturday, February 22nd, 2014 at 9am.
There are only fifty places available so it is advised to enter early.
The event is open to 18 year olds and over, the entry fee is €50, the majority of which is going directly to 'East Cork Rapid Response'.
The First Indoor Marathon in Ireland is now also open to relay teams of two to five people per team. This will allow for people who wish to run a half marathon or run as part of a team to complete a marathon; the minimum being 5.2 miles. The entry fee for a two person team will be €25 per person and €20 per person for teams of three or more. Applications to be made via the Tri ‘n Run facebook page
The route, unlike any other in the country, is circa 160 laps of the Midleton Community College corridors with entertainment and refreshments being provided along the way. It is guaranteed to be a very different and unique event!
To register, or to get further details, check out the 'Tri 'n Run' facebook page.
This sounds like a fun event and well worth supporting a very good local cause.
