The Great Ireland Run 10k takes place in and around the beautiful surroundings of Phoenix Park in Dublin – a 1,752 acre expanse, twice as big as New York’s Central Park, home to over 600 fallow deer and one of the world’s oldest cricket clubs.
A popular place for visitors and sporting events, the park is the perfect place for a 10k run. Starting on Chesterfield Avenue runners will make their way around the north corner of the park before looping around and heading south towards the Phoenix Monument and Papal Cross.
Keep your eyes open for hurling matches taking place on the Fifteen Acres, and get a glimpse of the Magazine Fort before you make your way west towards the Furry Glen passing St Mary’s Hospital. You’ll then head back up towards Chesterfield Avenue to make your big finish.
