The course is 5000m (5K) long. It's run inside Waterworks Park which is at the junction of the Antrim and Cavehill Roads in North Belfast. There are large 'tombstone' shaped posts marking the Start and Finish as well as at each kilometre and at key turns. The course is run entirely on tarmac paths. Some sections of the course may accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain. Dependent on availability, marshals will be at key sections of the course, or signs will be in place.
