Clonpriest 5k Traffic Plan

From Clonpriest 5k website

"Set in the beautiful village of Gortroe in East Cork, the Parents Association of the local National School invite you once again to join us on the roads to walk, jog or run this Fast, Flat 5K PB course.

For 2016 the evening promises to be an even bigger and better event than last year.
- Chip timing is back and means that race results and your official race time will be available once you cross the line.
- Our route has a maximum elevation of just 15 metres so it IS a really Flat course - many claim it, but few deliver it!
- ONLINE REGISTRATION will speed things up, but you can still register on the night if you prefer

Race Information

"The purpose of this event is to raise funds for the Clonpriest National School.

This race is organised and run with the help of Atheltics Ireland, Youghal AC and a small army of volunteers.
With Chip Timing  the results will be available immedialely after the race, we'll post them here on the site later that night but you also receive your own personal time by text to your mobile afterwards,(where you have registered a phone number).

We have carefully chosen, formally measured and tested this route, to make sure that it's flat and fast for those of you interested in speed, while the more laid back will have a lovely evening out on the roads of East Cork.
