Ireland set to host the 2014 European Marathon Championships
History will be made in June 2014 as Ireland hosts it's first official UCI championship event. The European Marathon Championships is set to attract the best racers in the world to the sleepy village of Kilfinane, nestled in the Ballyhoura Mountains, County Limerick. Ballyhoura is well equipped to host the event, having previously facilitated International Bluegrass Enduro Tour and the Irish National Marathon Championships in 2013. The event is set to bring a much welcome tourism boost to the area as competitors prepare in the days and weeks running up to the event.
