Whether you are completing the 5km run or 10km run, please aim to arrive at 19.30 (7.30pm) so that we can ensure everyone will receive their flashing armband and have a group photo before we go running!
The start and finish line will be located at the main entrance to the Retiro Park (Puerta de Alcalá) and the run will do a full loop of the inside of the park. The 5km run will finish after one lap while the hardy 10km runners will loop around a second time.
After the race has finished all runners are encouraged to meet up in the James Joyce Irish pub (Alcalá 59) for a catch-up and to raise a toast to Mark.
