The race starts in Castle Park, near the front of the City Hall, and finishes in Ward Park. The race is an all-inclusive event, and has attracted Olympians such as Paul Pollock, National Marathon Champion (Irl) Laura Graham, local athletes, new athletes and wheelchair participants in the past.

Water stations will be available at Groomsport, and at the finish line.

Refreshments will be provided after the race in the bowling pavilion, adjacent to the finish line in Ward Park.

Please note refunds will not be offered for this event unless cancelled by the event organiser. This is due the event financial commitments, irrespective of the number of race participants.

Facilities

Changing facilities, including showers, are available at Bangor Aurora Aquatic & Leisure Complex. Toilets are also located in the Leisure Centre, as well as public toilets and portaloos at the start area.

Free car parking is available at the Aurora Leisure Complex, near the start area at Castle Park, or close to the finish at Ward Park. There are also a number of paid-for carparks nearby. Please allow plenty of time to park and make your way to the start line.

Route

The route is fairly flat and fast, with a short hill around 9k. The route starts in Castle Park, close to the front of the Town Hall, and makes its way through Bangor town centre before heading out along the coast and countryside to Groomsport. The route will loop through Groomsport once again meeting the coast for the penultimate kilometre back to Bangor. The finish area is in Ward Park in Bangor, where there is plenty of space to rest and enjoy the atmosphere. Please note, the roads are not closed to traffic so follow marshals’ instructions. Why not ask to family and friends to come along and support along the route!

In line with UK Athletics Rules, the wearing of headphones is NOT permitted.
