For anyone who is not taking part in the race, there is still
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."
