The Inis Mór Half-Marathon is an established event over more than twenty years. The concept was generated by Aer Arann Islands to raise the profile of the destination and to raise funds for Irish Childrens’ Hospitals. Aer Arann personnel have voluntarily organised and managed this event from the beginning.
This unique event has clocked up many miracle miles for our children’s hospitals and has raised over two Million Euro to date,
A plaque of appreciation hangs on the walls in Temple Street Children’s Hospital to this day acknowledging this great event and the funds raised by its participants.
This event has enabled us to purchase many pieces of vital life-saving equipment over the years to support various departments within the hospital, such as ICU, Theatre, Renal, Respiratory, and A&E to name but a few.
We simply could not have done this without the help of the committee, the community and the participants of this event, and indeed local businesses.
So whether you run, walk, or jog, the Inis Mór Annual Half Marathon, is a unique and memorable experience for all involved. The event will take place annually in April on Inis Mór
