The course starts and finishes at the Ballina Rugby Club, Creggs Rd, Ballina, Co.Mayo.
Celebrating its fifth year in existence, the Half marathon has a brilliant atmosphere as family members, friends and supporters will be able to see competitors throughout the course.
The half marathon route is relatively flat with a few challenging hills along the way. Most of the half marathon will be run on roads on either side of the banks of the River Moy. Just over one mile of the course will take participants through Belleek Woods. There is an excellent trail surface on this part of the scenic terrain, which is used daily by local runners and walkers in hail, rain or shine!
The River Moy Half Marathon Starts and Finishes at The Ballina Rugby Club, Creggs Road, Ballina.
The Rugby Club can be accessed from Ballina town through the Quay Village. Take the first turn right after Crockets on the Quay. Approaching Ballina from Co.Sligo on the N59, turn right at Creggs Cross onto Creggs Road.
