The half-marathon starts and  finishes in Clonmel with the last 5-miles / 8kms along the scenic Blueway next to the River Suir.

The first 7kms of the course are near the river and pretty flat. Just before the 7km mark, there is a climb of about 30m over the next km. 

The course then undulates a bit before dropping back down around the 12km mark. The last 9kms are flat which is just when you need it to be.

Race HQ is Gaelcholaiste Cheitinn, The Mall Clonmel, post code E91 K2E2. Race start is about 1 km from here on the Old Waterford road.

All race numbers must be collected at the race HQ before the event and this base will also be used for after the race and there will be refreshments etc.
