TRALEE Marathon organisers are looking for stewards and volunteers to help run the event on Saturday March 18.

The organisers require people to volunteer a few hours to help cover some key spots along the route, with time slots of 9.30 am-12.30 pm and 12.00 pm- 3.00 pm.

The marathon is taking place on the Saturday of a jam-packed weekend, with St Patrick’s Day on Friday and the sold out Kerry v Dublin game on Saturday night.

Tralee will be buzzing with activity and the marathon will be no exception. It is a major event in the Tralee calendar and one that is well supported by the local community.
