The Bay Run Half-Marathon was started back in 2006 and this year it hosted its 10th running of the event. A brilliant run it is one of the most scenic Half-Marathons around, starting in beautiful Glengarriff and finishing in the town of Bantry. The 13.1 mile route takes in the full expanse of Glengarriff Harbour and Bantry Bay and as the saying goes, “Don’t let the scenery stop you …”.

You also have the option of a 10k on the day, so if you are not up to the longer distance, the shorter route could be for you.

The run is held at the start of May every year, to find out more and register for the event go to
