Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon

Since 1998, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series has made running fun by infusing the course with live bands, cheer teams, and creating a block-party atmosphere for participants and spectators. Fuelled by each runner’s journey, we celebrate running and all of the moments worth running for. Join the half-marathon in 2017 as the Half-Marathon celebrates 20 years running!

Without doubt, one of Ireland’s most fun and entertaining running events, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon is back to celebrate 20 years in 2017. With local bands lining the route and a weekend of festivities planned, it promises to put a spring in the step of everyone who enters.
