Half Marathon Course Map

The AAI certified route starts at St. Aloysius college and will take you along the banks of the river Shannon out to and around Clonown before you turn and return in the “old” Ballinasloe road back to Athlone.


  • Water stations are located at miles 3, 6, 9 and the finish line.
  • Toilets are on the route in Clonown village (at 4 mile point) and at Kenny’s garage as you come onto old Ballinasloe Rd. (at 8 mile point). There will also be toilets available at Start/Finish area and in the grounds of St. Aloysius College near registration.
  • Don’t let that elevation map scare you, the total elevation gain over the 13.1 mile route is approximately just 70 feet!!!
