Start of the East Cork 3 km series in Midleton...Tues 12th Oct (7:30pm)
What is it???...........Basically, the race itself is 3 loops of a 1km circuit just to the South of Midleton in East Cork. No prizes, no refreshments or anything like that. It's just a 3k run. Entry fee is about €3. The start time for each race is 7:30pm. There will probably be around 100-120 runners taking part.
Note of Caution....If you are doing this race, remember it is in a residental area. The organisers depend on the goodwill of the local residents so that this race can continue. Please keep this in mind when parking, warming up and so on.
Reflective vest........Part of this race is on the hard shoulder of the Midleton to Whitegate road. The organisers request that you wear a reflective bib or vest for the race.
Please note the primary purpose for this series of races is to provide some winter training for runners in the East Cork area. Due to the location of the race, it can only handle a certain number of runners. 70-80 is a nice number, 100-120 and it's getting congested, especially at the finish line. 150 and above will present a lot of problems. Just something to consider if you are going. This is the only preview of the race series that I'll be putting up here on the site.......i.e. Notify people that the series is on but not to constantly remind them.
