ABOUT THE 10K
The 10K Route is one single loop of the course, including the causeway.
Starting on Nimmo’s Pier at the Claddagh, 10K participants run along the closed road through the heart of Salthill as far as the camping park, turning down towards the sea and return via the back of the Golf Club and along the promenade, out and back a stretch of the Causeway and back to the Claddagh.
This is a very fast and flat course and perfect for PB attempts.
The start area is self-seeded according to predicted race time. Three start chutes are set out as follows:
1. Elite & Sub 45 minutes.
2. Sub 60 minutes.
3. Over 60 minutes.
This will ensure a clear passage to the route at a pace you are comfortable with. The race is chip timed from start line to finish line. This means you will not lose out by starting towards the back
RACE DAY INFORMATION
You must collect your race number from Tesco in advance. Full information regarding race pack collection can be found here.
