Tralee Marathon 2015 - preview

1 week to go  before 3rd edition of Tralee International Marathon takes place on 15 March 2015. Another year, another route, not completely different but some new additions and some changes, mainly for full marathon distance.
What's new: 
- start and finish line in different locations from previous years but still in Tralee town,
- full marathon passing Ardfert on the way to Banna and takes in 9.5km of the original Banna 10K route, half marathon will turn left in Ardfert (as in the previous years),
- turn in Fenit for full marathon will be at the car park and not at the end of the pier,
- no loop around Tralee town for full marathon,
- start for Full Marathon @9:00am from North Circular Road (outside Dunne's supermarket)
- start for Half Marathon@ 10:15am from Matt Talbot Road (outside Supervalu car park)
- finish for both Full and Half Marathon at The Mall (outside Eason)

Half marathon route is almost unchanged with only minor adjustments to start and finish line.
St.Brendan's AC will have male & female runners in both Full and Half marathon distances and we are hoping for big cheers from Ardfert and Banna locals and other club members on marshalling and stewards duty on the day as runners pass through our neighbourhood around 9:30 - 11:30am.
