Clonmel Half-Marathon now closed

Entries for the 2017 Clonmel Half-Marathon closed on Wednesday the 16th of August, the first time this race has ever sold out. If you haven't registered already, make sure you don't travel to Clonmel on Sunday looking to enter.

In 2016, they had 690 entries and that included people entering on the morning of the race. With the 800 limit, it's up 16% already and would probably be a good deal more if people could enter on the day.

This race is organised by Clonmel AC and they have grown it slowly but surely over the years. Here is a statement from Niall O'Sullivan of the club..."We are excited to announce the Boston Scientific Marathon is a sell out, with a grand total of 800 entrants! Registration is now officially closed, with no further entries taken online or on the weekend of the race!"
