The 2019 Abbott Longford Marathon attracted a record number of entries with athletes from 19 countries represented and here is a selection of photographs by Shelley Corcoran from what was a truly memorable occasion.
There will be more photographs published in Wednesday's Longford Leader.

What a weekend. 2.58 in Longford marathon. Delighted to break 3 hours for the first time. Never give up on your dreams. pic.twitter.com/2LrFC7mAbD— Ruairí Donnelly (@Rdons123) August 25, 2019
3hrs 33mins for my 30th Marathon. Wonderful to have @eugeniamantero and los suegros at the finish. I highly recommend the @RunLongford marathon. Fantastic organisation, excellent goody bag and really friendly people. And I’m not James Bond ;-) #42K #marathon pic.twitter.com/dj4m6NkTIv— Fin Goulding (@fgoulding) August 25, 2019
