The 17th Annual Longford Marathon - 19th August 2018
Welcome to the Longford Marathon website. This year marks the 17th year of the Longford Marathon. We began in 2002 when the 1st Longford Marathon was organised to mark the completion of Longford Man Liam Fenelon's 100th Marathon. 17 years later the event is now a favourite fixture in the Athletics Running calendar and comprises the Streets of Longford 5K, The Longford Half Marathon, The Longford Marathon, a Marathon Team Relay and a 39.3 mile Ultra Marathon.
This year, once again our main sponsor is Longfords own Pat The Baker and we're delighted to have their support.
Our tag line is "The Friendly Marathon in the Heart of Ireland", our race is organised by runners, for runners, over a flat course in the very middle of Ireland, running through the 3 counties of Longford, Roscommon and Leitrim. We go the extra mile to make sure everything is organised properly and that every participant has the best possible experience on the day.
