The Course

The Half on the Head course map and elevation is outlined below. You can also view a Garmin interactive view of the proposed route at the following link:

The Half on the Head follows a wonderfully scenic course from Ballyheigue Village right around the Kerryhead loop before ending up back at the start point. The first half of the course meanders gradually uphill before levelling out at the point of Kerryhead and then beginning a steeper decent back towards the village. Stunning views can be experienced the whole way around if you have the energy to enjoy them. If not you can expect a warm welcome at the finish and at the Race Bar-B-Que that evening.

The 10K route follows the first 5k of the Half Marathon route. It then makes its way back towards Kerryhead before a descent to the cliff road and a run alongside the sea to the finish.
