QUADRATHON 2020 HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS AND IN THE INTEREST OF KEEPING OUR RUNNERS AND COMMUNITY SAFE. WE REGRET THIS DECISION BUT AFTER EXAMINING DIFFERENT METHODS IT BECAME APPARENT THAT IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO STAGE THE EVENT SAFELY THIS YEAR. All existing entries will defer to next year and we will be making a decision soon on reopening entries for 12th – 15th August 2021)
This is not just another running event, it’s more personal than that, just ask anyone who’s experienced it, the concept of camaraderie, lasting friendships, amazing scenery and unequaled hospitality during this iconic 4 day running festival is unequaled at any event
Witness the scenic Wild Atlantic Way, run a different route daily, along rugged coastal roads in the unspoilt Inishowen Peninsula, home to Malin Head the most northerly point and steeped in scenery, history and tradition and experience the hospitality and warmth of both locals and event.
QUEST & WARRIOR (Half’s & Full’s)– Four day event in a paradise of amazing rugged landscapes, sometimes hilly terrain and a different routes each day. Generous cut-off times, early start’s for walkers and slow runners and fine-tuned race support ensuring runners focus is only on the challenge, and our comprehensive race logistics allows you stress free relaxation between races.
The growing success is attributed to the quality of the event and sociability of participants, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a sub 3 hr marathon or a half marathon walker, the varying start times for different abilities ensure total inclusion, no one is left behind with everyone finishing in a similar timeframe.
Whether medals are your thing or not you just can’t overlook the Quadrathon Medal, every finisher of this punishing 4 day event is a true winner and the medal is testimony to that ethos and is fitting for the achievement. We would argue that its in proportion to everything else about the event which is bigger and better.
