The event features 5K, 10K and 25K distance options to accommodate as wide a range of participants as possible and takes place along the route of the old railway line from Cork city to Carrigaline. The courses are professionally measured and chip timing is provided. The predominantly flat route passes through Blackrock, Mahon, Rochestown, Passage, Monkstown, Raffeen and Shanbally before finally chugging into Carrigaline. Follow us on Facebook.
