Weather Forecast, as at 18:00, Sunday 31st May
It looks like it will start out dry, with light rain/drizzle setting in
around 10am, getting a bit heavier for 1pm. By 4pm, it is expected to be 2 to 3mm/hour.
It is going to be pretty windy throughout, giving rise to a wind chill
drop in temperature. If anything, the wind seems to be strengthening, particularly from around 12 noon.
Temperature looks like being around 10 - 12 degrees, however this will
be tempered by a wind chill, due to the strong winds. For later
finishers, the heavy rain will make for an even colder feeling.
The Relay Route is exactly the same as the Marathon, and starts at the
same time, running in parallel. There are 5 legs:
Route Changes for 2015
- Patrick Street (Start) to Tivoli Flyover - 5.4 Miles
- Tivoli Flyover to Ringmahon Road - 5.4 Miles
- Ringmahon Road to Victoria Road - 5.75 Miles
- Victoria Road to Melbourne Road - 5.5 Miles
- Melbourne Road to Patrick Street (Finish) - 4.3 Miles
There is one small, but welcome, change in the route this year - the
"Hairpin" at madden's Buildings, at approx. 2.5 Miles, is gone.
Runners will now run straight through onto the New Mallow Road, where.
previously, they first swung left, towards Blackpool, and then did a
180 degree turn, around a traffic island, before heading back towards
the city centre.
There is a corresponding change to the start line, in Patrick Street -
the start line moves back down the street, to compensate for the change
in Blackpool. The new start is approx. 23m north of the Finish
Line - towards Patrick's Bridge.
