From the starting line near Ballacloan Stadium just off North Shore Road, those taking part in the half (which is open to both runners and walkers) set out along the hilly stretches of the race's first 5 miles, which takes participants northward along the coast, along the A10 highway (Bride Road). This first third or so of the race takes runners from the starting line near sea level to the race's high-elevation point of nearly 260 feet above sea level around the mile 4 marker. From there, the course begins a long and very gradual downhill-to-flat stretch for the rest of the course as runners make their way in a counter-clockwise direction around the loop course back to the starting area for the finish. Along the way, runners and walkers pass through what race organizers say is lovely countryside, as the rural roads criss-cross through numerous farm fields and small villages on the way back to the town of Ramsey, where the start/finish areas lie.
