Waterford will play host to its 7th annual ‘WLR Waterford Viking Marathon’ on Saturday June 30th and event organisers are delighted to announce the RNLI Lifeboats as the nominated charity for this year’s event. Training for many is well underway as registration is now open for the Full, Half and Quarter Marathon.

This year organisers hope to see over 3,000 runners take part along a route that highlights many of the key tourist landmarks of the city and surrounding area. Each year a different charity is elected to benefit from the event and this year sees the turn of the RNLI Lifeboats.

Roisin Ferris, WVM Event Manager says, ‘We are delighted to support the RNLI Lifeboats this year. The labour they undertake in Waterford and indeed beyond is truly remarkable, working and training relentlessly to save lives along our coast. We hope we can assist them in some small way through the event this year.’
