2013 Introduction to the Race
2013 Date – Sunday 22nd of September
The 2013 edition of the Charleville Half-marathon will take place on Sunday 22nd September at 10am. It will follow the same flat and fast route as normal but this year we are considering road closures to improve safety and quality.
At the Heart of Munster!
Due to the central location of Charleville in Munster (see Maps) our Charleville Half Marathon event is within a reasonably short driving distance for any runner in the Munster area. Anyone from further away can also get to Charleville easily due to its location on the N20. A drive from Dublin takes approx. 2hrs. Or those who would like to travel to the race in comfort and stay in comfort can get the train to Charleville and stay in the 4-star Charleville Park Hotel. See our Race Accomodation page for more details of special accomodation rates for the race.
For our international participants, we are an hour or so drive from Cork, Shannon and Farranfore airports.
