General Information on Marlay Park

Marlay is well known to both runners and concert goers, but the off-road bits have rarely been exposed to competition. We have a very unique and imaginative race planned in this popular venue which will be relatively flat, offering the chance for the speedsters to ramp up their pace and for newbies to not be afraid of sharp inclines!
