The race begins on Pearse Street and finishes in the Mullingar Town Park.
While the 2020 Mullingar Half Marathon, scheduled for March 17th, had to be postponed only weeks before the event, due to Covid, the Mullingar Half Marathon organising committee put in a huge amount of work and committed a lot of expenditure putting everything in place in advance of the event.
In light of this and in keeping with our move to a more sustainable event, and our ultimate objective to raise much needed funds for local charity T.E.A.M., we are going to utilise the 2020 merchandise for the upcoming 2021 event. This includes finishers medals and t-shirts, which include the March 2020 date.
While a big objective of the race is to create an enjoyable event for all runners we must also be mindful of our commitment to our local charity T.E.A.M. and be considerate of their fundraising shortfall in 2020.
Like us, a lot of you were disappointed the race couldn’t go ahead last year and couldn’t get your 2020 medals and t-shirts so we hope you will understand and support us in our sustainable and financial decision for utilising the fantastic 2020 merchandise.
