It was a long time coming – a year to be exact – but the Dingle Half Marathon was worth waiting for as over 2,000 participants enjoyed an action-packed day in ideal weather with splendid scenery to savour along one of the most dramatic courses of all.

Postponed last year due to the pandemic, the athletes couldn’t wait to test their skill and stamina in the fully sold out event along the Dingle Peninsula.

The 13.1-miles course traversed one of Ireland’s must beautiful locations on Slea Head with the course designed for runners and walkers to enjoy its breathtaking scenery and beautiful rugged coastline.

This is the only day in the year when vehicular traffic is removed from Slea Head immersing runners in the natural beauty of the Dingle Peninsula on the Wild Atlantic Way.
