Tralee 190817

Facilities

This parkrun is centrally located in Tralee town park making it easily accessible for town residents. There are pay and display car parks next to the park and Tralee town centre is well serviced by bus and rail services. Toilets are available at the entrance to the park.

Course

The course is made up off three laps around the outskirts of the park. The route is fairly straightforward, but there are route markers also. The course is entirely paved and is mostly flat, so it is possible to do a very quick time here, there are however a few sharp turns that will slow you down, especially a hairpin turn at the far end of the park. The park itself is very pretty, with a large rose garden. There are lots of nice features, monuments and statues around the park to catch the eye.

Coffee

Discounted coffee and scones are available at a nearby hotel, which are quite nice.

X Factor

Tralee is, of course, the home of the International Rose of Tralee festival, and I was fortunate enough to come here the weekend of the festival. The festival brings a great buzz to the town and this is very enjoyable to experience. The legacy of the festival can be seen around the town, most notably at the list of participants monument in the park, making this a nice event to visit any time of the year.
