Preview of the Newmarket to Kanturk 5 Mile Road Race - Sun 19th Dec (2pm)
Course.......You basically start in Newmarket, run the 5 miles to Kanturk. Although this can be a busy road, there is a hard shoulder for a large part of it and the road itself is reasonable wide. After you finish, the organisers provide a bus to take all runners back to Newmarket. Alternatively, you can go for a 5 mile warm down ;o)
As you can see from the map, there is a gentle downhill incline for most of the race. Should be a fast one.
For a closer look, the route is up on the MapMyRun website.
Weather....Note that this course is on high ground and is well inland so ice may be a problem. If in doubt, contact the organisers to confirm before you travel.
