The Warriors Run is a spectacular endurance run that takes place each summer around the Knocknarea mountain in Strandhill.
Strandhill is set on the Atlantic coast at the foot of Knocknarea, on the summit of which lies a megalethic cairn where Maeve, the legendary Queen of Connacht, is supposedly buried.
You'll take on multiple terrains in the Warriors Run, from the Cannon Gun at the beachfront in Strandhill to the top of Knocknarea, and back around to the beachfront again.
While it only may be 15 kilometres in length, The Warriors Run is an extremely tough course, with both the sandy beaches and the 1,000 foot climb (and descent) adding to the challenge – not to mention the Broom Wagon which picks up stragglers who go beyond the two and a half hour time limit on the run!
The Warriors Run attracts athletes from all over Ireland and abroad, and makes for a great day both for competitors and spectators alike. It also doubles as a wonderful way to see this amazing part of the country, so why not get yourself over to Strandhill for the last weekend in August and test yourself.
