The Race

Due the the success of the event and large numbers we have decided to add CHIP TIMING to the event for 2016.

Tea/Coffee/water and sandwiches will be available afterwards to all athletes.


For anyone who is not taking part in the race, there is still plenty to do if you wish to attend. Crosshaven is a fantastic backdrop for such an event and the natural layout of the village lends itself to creating a unique and enjoyable atmosphere. A vantage point near the village square guarantees that you will see all the athletes at least three times. There will be a DJ at the Start/Finish line to help lift the atmosphere and create excitement for the athletes.

Crosshaven 8k Road Race - Route Details

"Starting outside Centra in the Village Square, athletes pass around the roundabout and turn left up the Camden Road towards Fort Camden. Runners turn around at the entrance to the Fort and run back down Camden Road.

As you approach the village, runners take a right turn onto the Point Road and then a left turn which takes you past the starting point. The course then proceeds out to the Carrigaline Road. Athletes continue on this road, passing the RNLI Lifeboat Station as well as the famous Royal Cork Yacht Club for a little over 2km, until they reach the turning point.

Once you turn, participants have a straight run back to the finish line in the village."
