Born to Run Tralee Marathon Club are proud and excited to bring you the fifth annual Born to Run 40 Mile Ultra Marathon. The 2 person and 4 person relay events also return. Taking place on Saturday July 25th in the town of Tralee, this 40 Mile Ultra-marathon consists of ten 4 mile loops. The course is made up of a relaxing (and flat) 1 mile river walkway (concrete) and country roads (not quiet flat in places). Each loop has two hills of approximately 0.5 miles each and have a climb of about 90 feet each. These hills are immediately followed by an equal downhill section which will be a welcome relief after the climb.

Participants are advised to bring their own supplies which can be placed in the refreshment area at the start/finish of each loop.
