ABOUT THE HALF MARATHON
The Half Marathon is split into three laps; one short lap, followed by two full laps as detailed below.
Starting at the Claddagh, run along Grattan Rd as far as the Promenade Road and turn back along the path before commencing the first full lap. 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 along the prom and back to the Claddagh. Another full lap of this route is completed bringing you to the finish line at 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 1:40.
2. Sub 2 hours.
3. Over 2 hours.
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
