The 10k starts and finishes at the Gleneagle Hotel and takes in a loop inside the national park near Muckross House.

Participants in the half marathon will be taken by bus from Killarney to the start line at Moll's Gap.

Note that the road from Molls Gap to Killarney will be closed to traffic and it's the only time of the year that you can run on this busy road.

Is it not a bit silly that there is no facility to pick up a race pack early on Saturday morning at the race HQ in Killarney ? If you don't live in Killarney or pretty close by, then you are almost forced to book accomodation in Killarney on the Friday night if you want to run in either of these races.
I would love to run in the 10k, but can't stay over on the Friday night, hence i won't be running. I wonder how many potential runners they are excluding with this policy.
