Calling all runners still toying with the decision to take on the challenge of competing in this year’s O’Neills Walled City Marathon on Sunday, 2nd June 2019!

The organisers have announced that due to high demand for entries to the popular event which is now six weeks away, a limited number of registrations will be available from Easter Monday.

Noel McMonagle, Course Director, said: “Due to high demand and agreement from statutory bodies, a limited number of registrations will be released on Monday 22nd April at 9:00am.

“We would encourage anyone still keen to take part in this year’s O’Neill’s Walled City Marathon to register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”

Athletes from Ireland, Britain, Europe and overseas arrive in Derry each year to compete over a stunning 26.2 mile course in the historic Walled City.

The O’Neills Walled City Marathon takes place on Sunday, 2nd June 2019, starting from the Everglades Hotel on Victoria Road at 8.30am. The entry fee is £50 and all competitors receive a bespoke Walled
