The fourth annual 3 Marathons in 2 Days Challenge organised in conjunction with Ballina Athletic Club takes place this year on 24th and 25th February 2018.
Every year, this great event gathers runners from across the country. There is a choice of half marathon, full marathon and 53km ultra marathon, and you can either take part in one race, two or for the brave, all three! As in previous years, Race HQ will be at the Ballina Town soccer club at Belleek (map below).
The 3 Marathons in 2 Days Challenge schedule is as follows:
Day 1 – Saturday 24th February
Morning: Full Marathon start at 7am; half Marathon start at 9am
Afternoon: Full and Half Marathon start at 3pm
Day 2 – Sunday 25th February
Three distances to choose from
Morning: Full Marathon and ultramarathon at 8am; half Marathon at 9am.
So there are three events, three different courses with three different medals but all in one place – beautiful Ballina, and the routes take you through beautiful, scenic Belleek Woods close to the beautiful River Moy. There is a great running community in Ballina, so you’ll be in good hands.
