A BIG "Thank You" to all participants & supporters for making 2016 one to remember.
Hi, I just wanted to thank everyone involved with the marathon. It was tough but a great event.
You got the all the essentials right. The bottled water was great, there was enough lucozade, the t-shirt was again lovely. The traffic management was excellent. The music on the course really helped. The support was great.
All in all a great event and you did Waterford proud.
I just wish to say a big thank you and well done to you and everyone associated with the Viking Marathon on Saturday 25/06/2016. From Gardai, Waterford Council staff, organisers, and stewards.
The event for me began with the prompt e-mail replies from yourself Roisin, the excellent service and smiles from the people handing out the goodie bags and race numbers at the WIT Sports hall, answering any questions and being so helpful with tee shirts etc.
The race day was wonderful, there was a great atmosphere on the Mall and each of the stewards were professional, friendly and encouraging. The music on the route was excellent and no doubt it helped us all to complete the full, half, quarter or team event of the Marathon.
There was a great atmosphere in Tramore and again so well organised and a joy to run, again the encouragement and smiles were so helpful.
On returning to the RSC and the finish of the Marathon, it dawned on me the amount of work, effort and preparation that the team of people put into this event was colossal , ensuring the day was such a wonderful a success.
Please pass on my gratitude to all of your team
