Beginning and ending at the Wetlands in Tralee, The Tralee International Marathon heads out The Canal Path passing the Lock Gates, towards Cockashells Beach, passing behind Lohercannon, up the Kerries, into Spa Road, continuing up Caheraslee, left towards Fenit, back down the Kerries, right to front of Lohercannon, back to the Aquadome, circling The Rose Hotel finishing back at the Wetlands. It is a looped course so two laps for the Full Marathon.
The intention is that the new marathon route will remain unchanged for the next five years.
