Runners challenged to get into the FASTLANE

New half marathon and 10km event takes place in Clondalkin on 29 September.

FASTLANE is a new half marathon and 10km event taking place on the 29 September in Clondalkin, Dublin. With only 27 meters elevation per lap, meaning no tough hills, runners are being challenged to record their new personal best time.

The race is located along with the scenic settings of the Grand Canal in South Dublin, and around the newly surfaced perimeter of Grange Castle Business Park and offers a country feel on the edge of the city. It is a flat course with long straight lines and no steep hills. The 10km will do one lap of the route while the half marathon will complete two laps.

With a choice of 10km or half marathon, the Wheelworx FASTLANE is a challenge for everyone. All finishers get a bespoke colorful medal and a training top to show off at the end of the race. Goodies supplied by The Happy Pear, who has a café at the Round Tower Visitor Centre in Clondalkin, will be available at the finish area.

“It is going to be fun and challenging morning’s run”, said Eoin Ryan, event organizer. “It is also an ideal preparation race for the Dublin Marathon which takes place at the end of October, as the event fits in nicely with your training plan to run 21.1kms. Or just do the Wheelworx FASTLANE for its PB potential. But don’t let the name fool you. This is not just for fast runners. It is for runners of all abilities.”

The race is being supported by Waterways Ireland and South Dublin County Council’s tourism brand Dublin’s Outdoors. For further information, start times, and to register, runners are encouraged to visit
