QUEST – 1-4 Half Marathons over 4 days
WARRIOR – 1-4 Full Marathons over 4 days
HERO – 105 Mile Ultra / 27hr cut-off
This is not just another running event, it’s more personal than that, the concept of this event is experiencing camaraderie, lasting friendships, amazing scenery and unequaled hospitality during this iconic 4 day running festival.
Witness the scenic Wild Atlantic Way, run a different route daily along rugged coastal roads in the unspoilt Inishowen Peninsula, home to Malin Head the most northerly point and steeped in scenery, history and tradition and experience the hospitality and warmth of both locals and organisers.
QUEST & WARRIOR (Half’s & Full’s)– Four day event in a paradise of amazing rugged landscapes, sometimes hilly terrain and a different routes each day. Generous cut-off times, with early start for walkers and slow runners and fine-tuned race support ensuring runners focus is only on the challenge, as our comprehensive race logistics allows you stress free relaxation between races.
HERO – 105 mile challenge, involves running the same 4 scenic marathon routes as the WARRIOR course. This event will start in Moville at 12:00 on Saturday 17th with a cut-off time at end of each marathon stage and a Max. 27hrs to complete.
Hero Race Support – Essentially Runner will be required to have their own vehicle support crew with a min. of 2 people / 8hr period for the duration of the run. Majority of runners will merge with the Sunday “Warriors” marathon during stage 4 of the event.
The growing success is attributed to the quality of the event and sociability of participants, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a sub 3 hr marathon or a half marathon walker, the varying start times for different abilities ensure total inclusion, no one is left behind with everyone finishing in a similar timeframe.
Whether medals are your thing or not you just can’t overlook the Quadrathon Medal, every finisher of this punishing 4 day event is a true winner and the medal is testimony to that ethos. We would argue that its in proportion to everything else about the event which is bigger and better.
