Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are invited to get their hearts racing on Staten Island, New York or Inishbofin Island, Connemara, to support the work of Heart Charity Croí as it strives to prevent heart disease, diabetes and stroke!
Croí is now recruiting runners and walkers to take up a heart healthy challenge by doing the Inishbofin Half Marathon (13.1 miles ) in May or the world’s number 1 full Marathon, the New York City Marathon (26.2 miles ) in November this year. Both challenges are offered on a full package basis, with training support and guidance available to all those who sign-on and make the commitment to undertake these exciting challenges.
The New York City Marathon is ranked as one of the best in the world and entries are like gold-dust! Croí has secured a very limited number of places which are available immediately on a first-come, first-served basis. The Croí tour includes flights, four nights accommodation, airport transfers, race entry, insurance, team celebration dinner, branded team gear and the support of a team physio. The experience of a lifetime is guaranteed for all first-time or seasoned marathoners.
If you think a full marathon is beyond you, then the Croi half-marathon on Inishbofin island is an exciting alternative! This is the 5th annual Inishbofin Half-Marathon and it will take place this year on the weekend of May 14 – 16. Limited to only 80 participants, the event allows entrants to run/walk 13.1 miles around the idyllic island, taking in fantastic scenery along the route. The package includes ferry transfer from Cleggan, two nights B&B with lunch and dinners, and race entry. Walkers and runners are equally welcome. Places will fill quickly so early entry is advisable.
Marathon participation is no longer the sport of elite athletes, with people from all walks of life now taking up a marathon challenge every year for Croí.
