Are walkers welcome?

To reduce disruption to residents and road users we only have use of the roads for a limited time. We may have to ask walkers to use the footpaths for the last mile if they have not finished by 11am. We will have the race pacers guide the last finishers to the line.

Please use the footpaths for safety so as not to cause any collisions with runners.

Medical Assistance 

The Civil Defence will have medical personnel and an ambulance stationed at the start and finish.

There will also be a rapid response cyclist with cardiac difibulator available on the day.

Road Closures 

The course is on public roads, one half of which will be closed to traffic.

Stewards will be in attendance at all junctions and Gardai will also be at strategic points around the course.

Participants will be separated from any traffic by cones in all instances.

Distance Accuracy 

The course has been measured by an international course measurer supplied by Athletics Ireland.

There will be mile markers on the course.
