Event notice...The Great Railway Run - Sun 10th Nov 2013

Following last year's inaugural event, this year's Great Railway Run will take place on Sunday, 10th November 2013. There are a choice of three distances.......a 25 km race starting at 9:30am from Cork City to Carrigaline, a 10 km race from Monkstown to Carrigaline starting at 10:15am or a 5 km fun run from Shanbally to Carrigaline starting at 11:15am.

The run will roughly follow the route of the old Cork, Blackrock and Passage Railway which ran from 1850 until 1932.

For a large part of the run, the route will follow the old railway line that skirts the shores of Cork Harbour. Each event will finish at Carrigaline GAA Club. Shower facilities will be available in the GAA Club after the race and there will be bus transport to take runners back to the start areas after the race.

The pre-entry fee is €30 for the 25K and €20 for the 10K until the 7th of November. All proceeds from the event will go towards Carrigaline Lions Club
