The Athone 3/4 Marathon 2013

The Athlone ¾ Marathon race route is a fantastic running experience and was universally well received by the 2010, 2011 and 2012 participants. The route is scenic, challenging and safe - 31.646km / 19.664 miles long. The use of this race as an ideal marathon preparation event is clearly demonstrated by our 2011 winners Gary O Hanlon and Linda Byrne (Qualifying run in DCM for 2012 Olympics) and indeed our 2012 winner Barry Minnock who was 3rd Irish man home in DCM ( 2h 18') The course takes in magnificent lakeside views around Lough Ree, quite country roads, and local historical sites - checkout previous race pics in our gallery section or on the Action Photography website.
