The run shall be testing in places, finishing with an undulating finish to help spread out the field.

Cycle Course
The cycle leg exits Mount Juliet through the Oldtown entrance to the grounds. On exiting competitors will take a right towards Stoneyford; turn sharply left at the school and then complete a 19km looped course coming back in through the Equestrian entrance. Caution should be taken going through the town of Knocktopher and travelling around the roundabout. The course itself is relatively flat, with 2 notable climbs; a hill at the start of the route as you exit Mount Juliet which shall help stretch out the field and a short, steep climb around kilometre 16 as you turn onto Jerpoint Hill. The road surface is of a good quality.
