The route starts a few hundred metres before the finish line down towards Romain Island, at the end of Westport Quay, with beautiful views over Clew Bay and the surrounding area. The route will be marked with BLUE KM markers and directional markers for competitors. There will also be BLUE paint road markings for each km. Busy junctions and other key areas will be marshalled. The route is primarily flat, with a total overall elevation of 97m spread throughout the route. Competitors run toward Westport Quay, turning right onto a slip road at the 700m mark.
With the waters of Clew Bay to your left as you pass 7km, run along the footpath, passing the Sheebeen pub on your right before turning immediately left to complete the short loop of Rosbeg, passing the 8km mark. Rejoining the L1801, you are now running downhill, passing the Bus Eireann depot again (9k), before running back towards the Towers bar. Turn immediately left at the Towers, run along the slip road before turning left again and heading down the last stretch to the finish line at Romain Island.
