Just four weeks now to the Walled City Marathon warm up 10 Miler, on Saturday 5th March out of the Ebrington site and the early bird closing date of Friday 26th February - to guarantee a race t-shirt - is only three weeks away.

The SSE Airtricity 10 miler is highly recommended for anyone looking at the Larne or Omagh Half Marathons on March 19th and March 26th respectively and certainly for all prospective SSE Airtricity Walled City Marathon runners on Sunday 5th June.

Getting a decent 10 miler in early March is an excellent building block and offers a trip round a significant chunk of the WCM course, so if you have yet to sign up then do the needful immediately.

Get on to www.thewalledcitymarathon.com and enter online now. The entry fee is £15, it will jump to £20 for on the day entry, and entry by 26th February will guarantee a race t-shirt.

An on the day entry facility will be available at Ebrington from 9.15am but do yourself and the organisers a favour and do it online now.

The race start is 10.30am at Ebrington with a new finish this year, on the St Columbs Park running track - as used for last year’s Waterside Half Marathon - and eliminating the testing final mile or so which returning to Ebrington would involve.
