Wednesday April 26th 2017
Athletes may collect their race numbers, or registering on the day, from 6:00pm in Piper’s Amusements Field. Last entry will be taken at 7:15pm. There will also be a bag-drop facility for athletes in Pipers field.
There will be ample parking facilities for athletes taking part. Stewards will be on duty on the approach to the village, to direct patrons to various designated parking sites. All sites are a short distance from the start line.
There will not be chipped timing for these races, however a large clock will be on display at the Start/Finish line
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 in Crosshaven. Crosshaven is a fantastic backdrop for the 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. There will be a DJ at the Start/Finish line to help lift the atmosphere and create excitement for the athletes.
Both the 5Km (19:37 start) and 10Km (19:30 start) races start and finish outside Centra, in the Village Square. Athletes go around the roundabout, and out through the village, on 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 under 2.5km, until they reach the turning point for the 5Km.
The turning point for the 10Km race is near to O'Leary's Cross - French Furze.
Both races turn back onto themselves, allowing the athletes a straight run back to the finish line, outside Centra, in the village.
