Places for the hugely popular 3rd Annual Inishbofin Island Half Marathon in aid of local heart charity CroΓ­ are once again almost sold out!

This unique half-marathon challenge is open to walkers and runners and is being offered as a weekend package on the weekend of May 16th - 18th. The idyllic setting of Inishbofin is the backdrop to what has now become a hugely popular event. The 13.1mile run appeals to runners or walkers of all levels, who are guaranteed an unforgettable weekend.

This charity event offers a weekend package, which includes 2-nights Bed & Breakfast and evening meals (Friday & Saturday), race entry and return ferry transfers to and from Cleggan. The route, which utilises the main road around the island, offers stunning views from every side of the island and is challenging! Uniquely, due to the narrow roads, this 13-mile run or walk is offered as a time-trial with runners/walkers starting in pairs at 30 second intervals. This adds to the excitement of the event, as the Winner is announced based on time analysis, rather than first home!

As one participant from last year said "The food was incredible, the craic was mighty, the organisation was superb, the support and encouragement from the islanders and the Croi team was invaluable... it was another one of those brilliant, well run Croi events that keeps so many of us coming back for more year after year!".

There are only 10 places left for this unique event and are available strictly on a first-come, first-served basis.
