The start of the 3k Running Route is by the Inniscarra Bridge entrance to the Regional Park.  The first sign is by the Soccer pitches and the final sign is upriver from the Weir.  The route is easily navigated by following the blue signs.  This 3k route makes the most of its scenic setting. The terrain is a mixture of tarmac, gravel and track pathways, taking in the Soccer pitches, two pedestrian bridges and passes by the canals and the Weir before culminating with wonderful views of the River Lee.
