Gear Check Details
All 3 races start at the same point, 10k at 8:30am and half and full marathon at 9am. Meeting point before the race will be Plaza Parterre, 28009 Madrid, Spain, it’s halfway between the bag drop and start line, will meet at the entrance on Calle de Alfonso XII.
I’d like to get some pics beforehand so can the 10k runners meet just before 8am and the half/full marathoners at 8:30am. Drop off your gear first then head to the meeting point.
Fartlek goes on tour tonight, we will be meeting outside of St. Fintan’s Cemetery at the base of Howth Hill at the usual time of 7pm. The route is less than 5 miles, involves only one hill and has some fantastic views.
