Waterford Viking Full Marathon 2024

Get ready for an extraordinary marathon experience! Imagine running 26.2 miles (that's 42 kilometers!) through a breathtaking journey filled with historic and scenic wonders that will truly amaze you as you pass each mile marker.

But that's not all! Along the way, you'll be treated to an array of entertainment and support that will keep your spirits high and your legs moving. From lively music to energizing supporter zones, we've got it all to make your marathon unforgettable!

And to kick off this incredible adventure, what could be more fitting than starting in the oldest city in Ireland, founded by the Vikings in 914AD? Participants will come together at the heart of the action on Parnell Street, with the starting line positioned between the iconic Waterford Crystal and the Bishops Palace. From there, you'll be led out of the city to explore the very best of what Waterford has to offer.

Picture yourself soaking in breathtaking views of the River Suir as you run along the Greenway, and this year, we've added a fantastic new addition to the route: an exclusive journey through the magnificent Mount Congreve Gardens, known as "The Great Gardens of the World." 

To fully savour the Greenway, you'll be brought back for a few more miles before making the triumphant turn back towards the heart of the city, where you'll complete your epic race with a hero’s welcome. Get ready for an adventure like no other – the Viking Marathon is going to be an incredible experience!  Register today to secure your place and avoid any disappointment.
