After the success of last year's half marathon & 10k run, Mondello Park are delighted to be running both again as well as a full marathon on the Mondello Park track.
The circuit, which is 3.5km long will act as the route for all taking part, which will be ideal for those looking to pace themselves, set personal best’s or prepare for the Dublin Marathon, which is 7 weeks after. In fact the feedback from the event in 2016 is that it’s an ideal venue for long distance running as it’s on a closed road, smooth running surface, on-site parking and facilities as well as having the unique benefit of allowing friends and family cheer you on and follow your progress.
The circuit may seem like an easy run but it’s only when you get out and see the various dips, climbs and hills on the track that the challenge truly presents itself. But, if you come home in first place, you have the bragging rights, to say you and famous race car driver Ayrton Senna have something in common, winning a race on the famous Mondello Park track.
Last year runners also received inspiration from The Stig, as he helped to keep Runners hydrated. Water stations are provided throughout the run as well as t-shirts, goodie bags and medals for all taking part.
There will be prizes including cash for 1st, 2nd & 3rd in both the male and female categories of the Full and Half Marathon with the first home in the male and female categories of the 10k receiving prizes. Stay tuned for more information.
The number of participants across all events is restricted to 600 , with early bird entry available, people are advised to sign up early to avoid disappointment.
