Tullaroan was the place to be as runners from all corners of Ireland - and beyond - tackled the famous hills in a series of events.

The seventh edition of the Tullaroan Marathon, back after the pandemic, celebrated with runs of all distances including ultra, full and half marathons, as well as 10k and 5k courses.

Early risers set off at 7am in the first of the runs, the Ultra (39.3 miles), along with the first batch of marathon runners. The glorious morning made life easier as runners tackled the various courses before crossing the line for their well-deserved medals and some refreshments!
