This is a half marathon and 10k event which is run entirely on the golden sandy beach that stretches around Brandon Bay in the Kingdom of Kerry – all the way from Fahamore in the Maharees, to Fermoyle point under Mt Brandon itself. The event starts and finishes at Fahamore in the Maharees and competitors doing the half marathon effectively run from one point of the 7 mile beach to the other and back on an ‘out and back’ course (Fahamore – Fermoyle – Fahamore). The event is being organised and run by Castlegregory Celtic F.C. and is a non-profit event.

It is Ireland’s original running event in Ireland ENTIRELY run on the beach!! What a challenge! Last year’s events saw over 500 people take part from all over Ireland and the world!

The staggered start times for each event which will generate a great atmosphere around the end line as all participants will be arriving back together. There will be water, fruit and hot soup for all at the end of the race, perfect after such a challenge
As always we will be providing each participant with a race number & timing chip, so whether you run, walk or jog your exact time will be on hand afterwards.There will also be an ambulance on site during the event.
