I'll let you into a little secret - I really wanted to run this one in April 2014
But I regret I won't be running it I'm really gutted! I think it is difficult place to get to
I emailed the Race Director he did not brother to email me.
So who has ran the Connemara Marathon/Ultra Marathon?
Am I correct? That you have to get an aeroplane from Luton Airport to Shannon Airport
Then drive to Connemara
Am I also correct there is no trains or buses that travels to Connemara
I hear it's not easy to get to Connemara in Ireland
If you ask someone on here that's running it, nicely, they might let you travel with them and share the expenses?
If you can find a flight to Dublin, then you just have to get the train from Dublin to Galway City. On race morning the marathon organisers lay on buses from Galway to the start.
I did it in 2012, but I went from Glasgow, drove to ferry port, got boat to Belfast, then drove down to Connemara - it took fecking hours, especially the part in Ireland because the road infrastructure is quite rural for the most part. I then had a weeks holiday in Connemara, it is a lovely place and everyone is very friendly. However, flying is probably the best option if you are only going for the weekend.
