This spectacular Half–Marathon and 10K forms part of the Run the Kingdom race series. The race will be themed around the Valentia Transatlantic Cable, with finisher medals and t-shirts designed around the cable theme. It will also be a weekend to celebrate this historic link between Ireland and Canada. The Valentia Cable was linked to Hearts Content in Newfoundland. In 1866 the first signals were exchanged between Valentia and Newfoundland. The cable united communities across the Atlantic for the first time and it was the beginning of the information super highway as we know it today. Finisher Tops and Medals for Half – Marathon Runners, Medals for 10K Runners. Both races will start and finish outside the Royal Hotel in Knightstown.
