Please be aware that Dundrum can be busy on a Saturday morning with the car-boot sale and mass-goers. Where possible please car pool if you know of other people travelling to Dundrum for the race. Runners are permitted to use the carpark at the back of the parish hall and also there is parking in a field on the way into the village (on the Clough/Belfast side). For those familiar with Dundrum it is the field that is normally used by people attending the car-boot sale on Sundays in the village.

It is extremely important that runners heed the marshals who will be directing traffic and showing runners where to park. Marshals will be wearing hi-viz bibs and will guide you to your parking space.
