Know what a kilomarathon is???

A kilomarathon is a new type of race that is hitting Ireland in September in Moone Co Kildare.

Instead of 26 miles as per a normal marathon a kilomarathon is 26.2 kilometres! And if you aren’t quite able for that distance there is a 10k too.

So if you are a seasoned runner or need a new challenge to work towards then this could be the event for you, taking in the lovely Kildare countryside.

Visit the Kilomarathon website to register and for all details on the route.

Thanks to the Kilomarathon organisers for choosing Barretstown as one of the beneficiaries.
