The 2024 Achill Half Marathon and 10K is close to selling out. As of today (13th February), only 77 places remain available for the Half Marathon and 60 for the 10K. Any runners still undecided whether to commit are urged to register now – Register for 2024 Achill Half Marathon & 10K.
This popular running event takes place on Saturday 6th July with the start and finish at Keel, next to the beach. Honoured as Ireland’s ‘Most Scenic Route’ and ‘Best Half Marathon’ by Run Ireland magazine, the Half Marathon route offers a challenge even to elite runners, with an elevation gain of 212m and frequent winds direct from the Atlantic.
After the race, the pristine Atlantic waters at Keel Beach adjacent to the finish line offer a soothing relief for runners. There is also a beach side mobile sauna in Keel, and no fewer than three seaweed baths in the Achill area for relaxation of aching muscles. For accommodation options for runners staying in Achill, please see our Achill accommodation listings.
Please see the Achill Half Marathon & 10K website for fuller details of the event.
