Waterford will play host to its 6th Annual ‘Waterford Viking Marathon’ on Saturday June 24th and this year promises to be special! The three events, Full, Half and Quarter Marathon, will all commence together on the Mall in the heart of this historic Viking City.
The 2017 Full Marathon route will be officially measured by an AAI approved course measurer. We hold an official permit and are fully insured. WVM is also a member of AIMS (Association of International Marathons).
A new route for 2017 will 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. A taste of the recently developed Waterford Greenway is also on offer while musicians and DJ’s entertain and distract runners along the way! An impressive 350 helpers will line the route, with marshals, water stations and medical personnel ensuring the safe return of all runners to this years’ family fun finish line event which will take place in the state of the art WIT Arena, the largest sports, conference and events centre in the South East.
