A flat fast course which will prove popular with both fun and elite runners alike...

With a new Race HQ, in Cork City Hall, the 2019 route has been finalised, to minimise the distances between Race Start/Finish, and HQ. However the course is essentially the same as previous years, taking in the Marina, Blackrock Village, Lakelands Walkway and the old Railway cutting.


2019 Cork City 10 Miler Route

Proceed along Monaghan road until you reach the junction with Blackrock Road, where the course turns right, at the Victoria Road roundabout, by the petrol station, and heads back through the start line, on Centre Park Road.

Continuing back down Centre Park Road for a second time, however, this time, the route continues right down the Marina, all the way to Blackrock Village. There will be a water station located on the Marina, just past Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

At Blackrock Village, the course crosses the Promenade and heads up Castle Road.

Passing Blackrock Castle, the route joins the Mahon/Lakelands Walkway, for approx. four miles. There will be another water station on this section.   After the Old Railway Line section, the course comes out by the Atlantic Pond, and continues past CAB Motors, and up Monahan Road, to the Finish Line outside Kennedy Park, where the Echo Women’s Mini-Marathon finishes
