This parkrun is located in the centre of Westport town and is easily accessible to the town residents. There is a large carpark next to the start line, and Westport is serviced by bus and rail connections. There are no toilets or changing facilities near the start of this event.
This is an out and back course, with a little repeat at the start of the course. The course is entirely paved, and is well sheltered. However, there is a fairly significant climb in this course, which means it is probably not a course for a PB. I guess it depends on how quickly you go down the hill. The course is fairly enclosed but at one point opens out as you run west and on a clear day there are great views of Croagh Patrick.
There is an abundance of options in the picturesque town centre of Westport for a post run coffee. I had a tasty cappuccino.
Westport is a very pretty town and through the Browne family it has an interesting link to the infamous Grace O’Malley. Croagh Patrick adds to the beauty of the place.
