Is the Forest Marathon Walker & Wheelchair friendly?
We are welcoming walkers & wheelchairs or anybody who want to take part and over 18 years old.
You do need to make sure if you have special requirements that someone looks after you or that you are self-sufficient.
Forest Marathon does not have the resources and manpower to provide dedicated volunteers to your needs. We will try our very best when possible.
Please make sure you bring spare equipment if needed, such as spare tyres, plasters etc.
The quality of the road is not guaranteed to be smooth and is under Coillte & OPW authority, not the event organiser.
Pacing devices and Personal Music Players
For safety reasons, we do not recommend the use of music players with earphones. The main reason is simply to avoid any accident such as runners or wheelchairs coming from behind, along with marshals trying to guide you toward the right direction or warn you of any immediate danger. Use of music equipment can distract runners attention to the running event.
Use of GPS, a heart rate monitor, stopwatch to monitor your progress are allowed.
Pacing – all kind of technical pacing devices are forbidden, especially by vehicles of all kinds, such as stride rates, tempo equipment including tempo music which would give you an unfair advantage over other participants.
Pacing, i.e. the ‘step making’ and the accompaniment of participants by any athlete not in the same event is strictly forbidden e.g. no man can run with any woman as they are taking part in separate events, 100km, 50km and marathon athletes are also in separate events and cannot pace each other and any runner who has retired during the event must take no further part at all.
Where can I find the results?

If you are unable to locate your time, it means the timing company has not released them yet so please be patient! Please bear in mind that the last runners will finish at 10pm & it will only be after this that the results will be compiled so although you might have finished at 1pm the event is still in progress.
Results will be posted on our website within 7 days of the events due to the complexity of the events. We do not guarantee the timing company will send you a text result.
Anybody is welcome to support and encourage runners and we thank you for it.
Spectators need to avoid being on the route of the race where participants are running. This is for safety reasons.
Spectators can not help, assist any runners at anytime except in case of life-threatening situation. Any assistance will disqualify the athletes straight away.
Please be safe and if you wish to help and volunteer on the day, let us know and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
