Registration is now open to members and non-members for our Connemara Western Way Annual Walking Marathon and Half Marathon. The Walking Marathon takes place in some of the most scenic places in Connemara!
The meeting point for registration and bus collection is at Maam Community Centre and the route is from Killary to Maam Valley mostly along the Western Way. It is mainly a flat walk, the highest point being Maumean at 259 meters, and while about one-third of the walk is on the road the route is chiefly on green road or forest track.
There are spectacular views of Killary Fjord, the Maumturks and the Twelve Bens along the route and the walk is a terrific way to experience this part of the country.
All participants receive a well-earned meal in the Maam Community Centre on completion of their walk.
