The buildup to this year's Longford Marathon continues apace with news from the race organisers of an interesting series of races that can be used as preparation for this year's main event which takes place on the 29th of August next.
Full information about the Longford marathon can be found at http://www.longfordmarathon.com/
This race has long been a favourite of Athenry AC runners who have had a decent record of success over the years. The Longford course is fast and flat and the local organisers lay on a legendary spread on raceday.
We wish the Longford Club every success with this imaginative initiative.
