The Course

 

The route is an Anti-Clockwise course.

The race starts within the curtilage of Wexford FC Complex, Ferrycarrig Park. After approximately 1/4 of a mile the participants will turn left out onto the local road through Newcastle until it reaches the L3007 at Newcastle. At this point there is a left turn at a T junction (race distance approximately 2/3 of a mile). The race then follows the L3007 until it meets the N11 at Kitestown Cross. At this point the race distance is at the 1 ½ mile mark. There is a sharp left-hand bend midway on this stretch.

At Kitestown Cross the Runners turn left and continue in the hard shoulder of the N11 for almost 1 ¾ miles until they turn left again at Kyle cross (approximately 3 ¼ mile mark).

There is a short stretch on the L3006 until turning left again at the old Community Centre onto the local road through Bromley, Kereight and back to Newcastle. There is one more left handed turn back into the Complex for the long finishing straight to the Finish which is adjacent to the Start Line.
