Event notice...Dingle Half and full Marathon - Sat 7th Sept 2013

As the summer comes to an end, there is no shortage of Half-Marathons coming up on the race calendar. One of the most scenic is the Dingle Half-Marathon in the far west of Kerry. Starting in Dingle, the route goes through Ventry before making it's way around Slea Head to the finish line in Dunquin. Those doing the full return to Dingle to complete the 26.2 mile loop.
