First thing to note is that the race is in Ballintotis this year, a few kms to the south-west of Castlemartyr and not in Castlemartyr itself.
Before we look at the race properly later on, here is some additional as supplied by John Cashman...
Just a quick update from Ballintotis - our committee have received a huge response to our request for help with the local community really getting involved in the occasion.
We will have 3 car parks -
1 - a field just off the Main N25 Road - adjacent to the turn off for Ballintotis - this car park is approx 450 meters from the race HQ
2 - a field located just beyond the Race HQ and approx 150 meters from race start
3 - the Church Car Park which will be restricted - as it is also the race HQ.
The stewards will be attempting to prevent congestion building up in any one area and thus will be alternating the usage of each car park. In general for those who wish to exit early after the race the advice is to use Car Park 1. We will also operate a one way sytem from Car Parks 2 and 3 immediatley after the race to prevent any traffic facing oncoming runners as they head for the finish line..
A marquee for changing will be erected on the green beside Loughaderra Lake just next to the Church Car Park - entries will be taken at another marquee in Church Car Park. Refreshments will be served from this second marquee and the prize giving will also take palce here.
Hope everybody enjoys their visit to Ballintotis
