The 6k race (3.72 miles) begins at the CCBC Dundalk Campus and will follow the parade route through Old Dundalk. Traditionally, people preparing to watch the parade will be lining the streets to cheer on the runners and often supply them with a cooling spray of water from their hoses.
There will be a water station at the halfway mark, and refreshments and rewards at the finish line. The race will end at Dundalk Middle School on Dunmanway.
