Dingle Rentals with StayYNA. From Dingle Adventure Race to the Dingle Marathon and the Brandon Bay Beach 10k/Half Marathon, there are plenty of fitness goals to draw you to Dingle…and a good excuse to treat yourself to a night in the pubs and restaurants after! Here’s what you’ll want to get training for…

1. Saturday 8th June 2019 The Dingle Adventure Race

With three course options - Mini (21.5km), Sport (43km) and Full (48km) - the Dingle Adventure Race has plenty to challenge at all levels.

With three course options - Mini (21.5km), Sport (43km) and Full (48km) - the Dingle Adventure Race has plenty to challenge at all levels. 

The Mini course is a taster of the event and organisers say you don't have to be very fit—the longest running element is 5km, but I suppose for some people that counts as ‘not very fit’. Ahem…(I’m downloading a Couch to 5k app as you read this, I swear). 

The course for DAR Mini is; 1km run Dingle Marina to kayak, 1km sea kayak, cycle to Ventry 7km, Run Ventry beach 5km, cycle back to Dingle 6km, 1km run to the Finish Line. 

After the sea kayaking, the Sport route takes you on a cycle around the stunning Slea head; at Dunquin you cycle up the steep Mam Clasack, then run up the Mountain track to the summit of Mt Eagle and back.

The original, and most challenging full route starts with a cycle across the Conor Pass, and a mountain run from Cloghane to Baile Breac, a road run back to Milltown, before finishing with kayaking and a run to the finish line. 

Need to know: registration is open until 3 days before the event, but with a maximum entry of 950 people, don’t leave it too late or you will be disappointed. 

Oh and the afterparty is in Danno’s! 

Cost: €65-70 registration fee.

2. Saturday 7th September 2019 – Dingle Marathon

Billed as ‘Ireland’s Most Scenic Marathon’, the Dingle Marathon offers a Half Marathon (13.1 miles) and a Full Marathon (26.2 miles)  course, taking in plenty of spectacular scenery along the way. It’s the one day a year when the traffic is barred from the tourist magnet roads of the Slea Head Drive—giving runners a wonderfully unique experience. If you aren’t breathless from exertion, the views you will encounter will take your breath away. 

Dingle Marathon were the proud winners of the ‘Half Marathon of the Year’ in the Running in Ireland Race Awards for the last three years in a row. 

The half marathon finishes up near the village of Dunquin, conveniently near to Kruger’s pub, for those who feel the need for a celebratory refreshment! Buses are laid on to bring runners back to Dingle town to continue the celebrations and cheer on the full marathon runners as they make their way back.
