Location of Parking & Registration


Carrigaline 5 Parking
The Main Parking area is adjacent to the Community Centre in Carrigaline.  It will be signposted, with stewards directing race traffic.  Race HQ, Carrigaline Community Centre is just a short walk from the car park.


Note: Due to ongoing roadworks on the Coolmore-Shanbally Grotto road, from 2  to 2.5 Miles, the 2018 course has been altered. Much of the course is the same as in previous years, however the start and finish areas have changed, and a new section, largely around the Novartis Pharmaceutical plant, has been introduced, as a 'work around'.

The new start is close to the Church of Ireland church, on the Currabinny Road, at approx. 0.75 Miles on the regular course.

The 2018 finish is at approx. 4.5 Miles on the 2017 course.

The Start is approx. half a Mile from the hall, will the finish is approx. 0.25 Miles from the hall

Mile 1: Largely downhill - a Fast Mile!

Mile 2: Largely flat, with a few short drags.

Mile 3: Long drag, with a short drop before climbing again to the 3 mile mark.

Mile 4: Starts with a good downslope section of over half a mile, making for good running.  After the turn, there is another climb, followed by yet another fast downslope section.

Mile 5: The downslope section continues for approx. 1/4 mile and is followed by the final hill.  After this it levels out, until entering Waterpark Estate again.  Waterpark is largely concrete, but downslope all the way.
