A great race which was helped considerably by the sunny weather on the day. I can imagine this becoming a firm favorite in the running calender but the entry price of 30 euro is way, way too steep for a 10 mile event.

great race but organisation was poor no portaloos, no mile markers bar 3 mile mark not even a cup of tea and no officials at the brandon on race morning

I did this race.....not a great route as you were weaving your way in and out of town via housing estate and last ml on canal was not nice....surface very uneven and tough on the mind as it was never ending.
Re the price ....yeah very steep but "Run the Kingdom " is a business ....clearly stated on their website.
BUT they are doing great training plans for runners in Tralee.....offering great support and encouragement.
A big proportion of crowd were from these groups.
I will return to Tralee on St Patricks weekend .....aware that I get nothing for free but......great work Marcus and crew !
Co Cork runner

price was way too steep and route was badly planned-doing the marathon in march and saw that we are getting the same medals as last year! what a joke,for a commercial race this is not acceptable.Races like this will ruin running in Kerry-if not done so already.

Enjoyable tough route. Marshalling was poor and nearly went wrong once or twice. Surface on canal bank very poor & entry too expensive but will probably return if fee is reduced.

If you want to charge 30 quid, there should be tea and sandwiches at the end. Get rid of the canal section. Offer runners who just want an accurately measured, chip-timed course, the opportunity to forgoe the goodie bag/tshirt, medal for €5 off the entry fee. This will save a lot of wastage in many respects.
