Waterford will play host to its 7th Annual ‘Waterford Viking Marathon’ on Saturday June 30th and this year promises to be special! The three events, Full, Half and Quarter Marathon, will all commence together in the heart of this historic Viking City. The route will then take runners over its’ two infamous bridges, Rice Bridge in the City and the iconic Thomas Francis Meagher Bridge, the longest suspension bridge in Ireland followed by a taste of the recently developed Waterford Greenway and stunning Mount Congreve Gardens. All the while musicians and DJ’s entertain and distract runners along the way!

An impressive 350 helpers will line the route, with marshalls, water stations and medical personnel ensuring the safe return of all runners to this years’ family fun finish line event in the state of the art WIT Arena, the largest sports, conference and events centre in the South East.
