New Marathon in Waterford???
It raises a lot of questions.....Will it be a stand alone event? Will it incorporate the Waterford Half-Marahton? Will that stay a seperate event? Will there be a relay?
Coming a few weeks after Dublin, I'd guess that it may attract a few hunded entrants. When you spread that kind of field out over 26.2 miles then huge gaps appear. Having another type of event running in conjunction with it would make a lot a lot of sense, especially when you consider the amount of effort that will go into organising a race over such a long distance.
Whatever format they decide on, this new Marathon in the Deise is sure to attract a lot of attention next year.
Now....where do I sign up?
