Important notice. In a change to previous years, the 2018 marathon and team relay will start at 8.30am.
The Team Relay makes this MoreThanAMarathon! The relay offers runners, joggers and walkers of all distances an opportunity to take part in the marathon without having to complete the full 26.2 miles. If you’re over 18 on the day, you’re included and, remember, there’s no upper age limit!
The Relay is run on the marathon course, starting and finishing on St Patrick’s Street. You can enter online or download a copy of the entry form here.
The relay stages are as follows:
LEG 1: Start (Patrick’s Street) to near Silversprings Hotel: 4.7 miles (7.6km)
LEG 2: Silversprings to Ringmahon Road: 5.5 miles (8.8km)
LEG 3: Ringmahon to Victoria Road: 5.8 miles (9.3km)
LEG 4: Victoria Road to Model Farm Road: 5.7 miles (9.2km)
LEG 5: Model Farm Road to finishing line (Patrick’s Street): 4.6 miles (7.4km)
Team members take one leg each (in teams of five), or take two or more consecutive legs in whatever combination suits them. We don’t need to know which runner is taking which leg, but the Captain should know who’s on which section.
Buses will shuttle to and from City Hall to Silversprings, Ringmahon Road and Model Farm Road.
