Eishtec Proud to Sponsor Waterford Viking Marathon
Eishtec was proud to sponsor the water stations for the Waterford Viking Marathon 2018 on Saturday, 30 June. The Waterford Viking Marathon 2018 was Waterford’s 7th annual marathon and despite some drama with the weather conditions, it was widely considered the best event to date.
A difficult decision was made by the organising committee to cancel the full marathon event which was justified on the day with temperatures in the high 20’s. Almost 2,500 participants lined up at the Mall in the heart of Waterford’s Viking Triangle to run in the quarter and half marathon at 9.00am on Saturday morning.
This event attracted many locals and visitors from all around the world. The unique route gave participants the opportunity to run through Waterford City, over the two iconic bridges, meander along the Waterford Greenway and through the world-famous Mount Congreve Gardens.
Eishtec staff volunteers braved the hot weather to hand out water to runners at the Eishtec water stations. We were joined by 250 other volunteers that performed essential duties such as marshals and first aiders. Claire Phelan our Head of Operations represented Eishtec at the prize presentations for the winners of the race events.
Included below are video highlights from the extraordinary event that truly captures the fantastic experience of participating and volunteering in the Waterford Viking Marathon.
Eishtec would like to thank all the committee and volunteers for the Waterford Viking Marathon for organising such an outstanding event again this year.
