Wish comes true: Ninth WLR Waterford Viking Marathon to take place on June 20
It’s time to dust down the joggers and get back into the training … the ninth WLR Waterford Viking Marathon will take place on June 20 with Make-A-Wish Ireland the nominated charity for this year’s event.
Registration is now open for the Full, Half, Quarter and Relay Marathon with more than 3,000 runners expected to part this year along a unique route that highlights many of the city’s key landmarks and attractions including the Waterford Greenway.
“We are delighted to support Make-a-wish this year,” Roisin Ferris, WVM Event Manager says.
“The work they undertake in Waterford and indeed across the country is truly remarkable. Every day they receive applications from families in need of help, for wishes which allow children to escape routines of hospital visits and treatments, replacing them with carefree, life-changing experiences.
“Waterford Viking Marathon hopes to help them in some small way through the event this year.”
Registration is now open for WVM 2020, for more details see www.waterfordvikingmarathon.com.
