The Longford Marathon, Half, and Ultra-Marathon 2012
The Longford Marathon, Half Marathon, and Ultra Marathon was held in Longford on Sunday August 26th 2012 with start times from 09:30 - 11:00. This is now the 11th year of the Longford Marathon. This year the organisers moved the start/finish area away from it's traditional location. However the majority of the routes for all of the races stayed the same. The race is sponsored by Pat the Baker. Proceeds from the race go to St. Christopher's Day Care Centre in Longford. Congratulations to all involved including the organisation committee and the members of Longford Athletic Club. This picture is a selection of pictures from the start of the 3 races and the first lap of the town from all of the three races. Some half marathon finish photographs are included with a small number of full marathon finishers.
The sun was out in force today - for the last Sunday in August. This made conditions tough on runners as the heat of the day impacted on performances. Support was good out on the course - with many locals putting out their own drinks stands outside their houses.
Overall a very successful day - with impressive finish times in all of the events.
