Information about Achill Half Marathon 2023

Running event name: Achill Half Marathon 2023

City: Achill Island



Country: Ireland

Latitude and longitude: 53.975128 -10.086231

About the event:
reland’s largest offshore island, Achill (An Caol), is connected to the mainland by a short bridge. Despite its accessibility, it has plenty of remote-island feel: soaring cliffs, rocky headlands, sheltered sandy beaches, broad expanses of blanket bog and rolling mountains. It also has its share of history, having been a frequent refuge during Ireland’s various rebellions.

Achill is at its most dramatic during winter, when high winds and lashing seas make the island seem downright inhospitable. The year-round population, though, remains as welcoming as ever. In summer, heather, rhododendrons and wildflowers bloom.

With that being said, the Archill Half Marathon is the place to be!!

The next Achill Half Marathon & 10K race takes place in early July and is organised by Achill Event Management in association with Achill Tourism, the local tourist office on Achill Island, Co. Mayo, in the west of Ireland.

The event, in its current format, has been staged in Achill since 2007 and is approved by Athletics Ireland. The Half Marathon race is the centrepiece to a full weekend of events and entertainment on Achill, one of Ireland’s most popular holiday destinations.
