The county of Kildare is known for many tourist destinations including the Kildare Cathedral and the Irish National Stud & Gardens. But not many people know that the county is pretty awesome when it comes to marathons.
Some of the best fun runs and marathons take place in Kildare every year. People from all over the area sign-up for some of the wackiest and most intense sporting events.
Here’s a list of the most anticipated fun runs and/or marathons in Kildare.
Kildare Ireland Runamuck Challenge 2020
This is not your usual marathon by the way. The Kildare Ireland Runamuck Challenge 2020 is an obstacle race wherein people are sure to be covered in mud. There are approximately 30 obstacles along the 5 km lap of varying nature.
The course throughout Coolcarrigan Estate is not something you should take lightly.
This course is only for experienced runners. There will be prizes for the fastest male and female competitors. There will also be a team prize for group entries. Participants can either choose between the 5 km or 10 km race.
We highly suggest you take on the 10 km race for some adrenaline-pumping fun. After the race, there will be an after-party on-site with good food, fine wine, and a DJ to serenade the crowd. The event will take place on March 7 so make sure to register today.
The Spartan Race is a worldwide event for experienced athletes, not just runners. The Spartan Race will take place on May 24 (Sunday) starting at 10 am. Just like the Runamuck challenge, the Spartan Race is not simply a race but an obstacle race.
There is no question that the Spartan Race is more unforgiving compared to Runamuck.
You get to test your stamina and endurance during the entire race with a variety of obstacles. However, the real essence of the Spartan Race is to decide the best athlete in Kildare.
The Spartan Race is an organization founded to help communities’ better bond together as it encourages them to conquer the challenge.
Despite some Spartans events in other countries being cancelled due to the Coronavirus break from China, the one in Kildare is a sure thing.
