At 2.5 miles they head up W Buildings and run an anti clockwise loop of suburban roads, Spectators could jump between the points quite easily on Grand Avenue with just 670 metres from seafront to the North most point (Lansdowne Road).

Half Marathon continue west along the coast until 10.5 miles where they loop on the barren lands of the western most point and head back east. Once back at 12.5 miles they will swing right onto the esplanade for 800 metres and into the finish.
