|Bronagh McInerney||Jan 2 2020, 3:48pm||Happy New Year Just wondering if it’s all trail or road and and trail for the half marathon?|
|Walsh Rowan||Jan 2 2020, 7:05pm||Hi Bill, it's a bit of both but trail across top of Seefin can be mucky so would highly recommend trail runners if that is why you are asking|
|Walsh Rowan||Jan 2 2020, 7:06pm||Hi Bronagh, you can download GPX plotaroute link in race details|
|Bronagh McInerney||Jan 3 2020, 12:06pm||Thanks Rowan it wouldn’t download on my phone. How many road miles for the half marathon? I’m thinking about shoes I also find the road tough|
|Robbie Williams||Jan 3 2020, 2:50pm||Attention:|
The will be some small route changes to the FULL marathon route because of the amount of rain we have had, some sections like the river run are not runnable.
The first “half” will be an extra 2kms
