Time to “Eyeball the Wall” – The Athlone 3/4 marathon

by John Shiels

Yes, its that time of year again…. just over a month to go to the Dublin city Marathon training should be nearly done and it time for a 3/4 to see how well you are prepared for the big one.

Don’t be fooled by the notion that Athlone is bang slap in the middle of the country, or “the Midlands” as we call it. “The Midlands” may be flat and at times soggy but this course is anything but. Now in it’s 5th year the course covers roads and country lanes around the village of Glasson, starting and finishing at the Glasson Golf Hotel.
