Walled City Marathon warm up events set to take place:
The Walled City Marathon (1st June 2014) may well be still some time away but training no doubt is ongoing for all budding runners. Indeed, the evidence is there for all in the city and district to see every day as preparation picks up ahead of the big day which awaits in June.
An incentive for the runners will be the upcoming warm up races, the SSE-Airtricty 10k and 10 mile events set for Sunday 9th March 2014 and Sunday 27th April 2014. Both will start and finish in the iconic Ebrington Square, starting at 11am and taking in sections of the actual Marathon route.
Entries will be taken on the day of each race between 9am and 10 30am at Ebrington Square, but it is possible to pre-enter online and pick up the race pack, and pay the entry fees of £8 (10k) and £10 (10m ) on race morning at Ebrington Square. Simply email your name, age on race day, telephone contact and t-shirt size to firstname.lastname@example.org
There is also an incentive to take on both races, as everyone who enters and pays for both races on Sunday 9th March 2014 will be guaranteed a special commemorative t-shirt; too good an offer to miss out on, so you know what to do!
Remember these races are also open to all runners and joggers and not confined to the Walled City Marathon entrants!! The 10k course will take in the Waterside Greenway, Peace Bridge, Foyle Greenway and Bay Road Park and you must be aged 16 or over on race day to take part. The 10 mile route will extend to take in the Foyle Bridge plus a loop out and back on Foyle Road before returning via the Peace Bridge to the finish in Ebrington Square. The minimum age for the 10 miler is 17 years on race day.
