Race notice...Pasage West Community 10k road race - Fri 17th May 2013

This is a brand new road race on the calendar! The Passage West Community 10k road race is coming up on Friday, the 17th of May 2013...

This is on the day after the Fota Cheetah Run so if you didn't manage to get into it, this one might be of interest.

Located to the south-east of Cork City and just a 10 minute drive from the South-Ring road, this 10k race is in close proximity to a lot of people...

The course itself takes in waterfront walkways and some country roads to the west of the town. It certainly isn't an easy course and it can be split into two halves. The first 3.5 miles are pretty flat while there are some 'nice' hills in the second half ;o)

This is a proper road race in every sense of the word. Leevale AC have been involved in getting the course measured properly by Jones Counter. It also has an athletics Ireland licence.

The local GAA club are offering their facilities for registrations, changing area, showers, post race refreshments and prize giving. Supervised car parks are available at the GAA grounds and the Soccer club.

Proceeds from this race go to Katie's Wish to Walk. I'd ask you to spare a few minutes and visit that website. It would be great if you could come along on the night and support the efforts for this special little girl........Friday, 17th May @7:30pm.

More details closer to the date.

Is the section from Mile 1 to Mile 3.5 travelling on the walkway adjacent to the water or the road which runs parallel to this?
If it is the walkway there would be a lovely view of the water whereas if it is on the road this view is obscured by trees.

It will be along the walkway.
