If you're not sure of the roads then take the N20 to Mallow.....left at the road about and take the road for Killarney. Out along this road, watch for the turn off right for Boherbue and Kiskeam.

Started doing this race in 2005 when a poster was left on my car did it it in 2005
2007 and 2008. Then in 2009 saw it was 16 euro to enter way to much it went up double the price as much as i wanted to do the race this was to much it went double then it went back to 15 euro which in my view is still to expensive if it went back to 12 euro i would do it again as i would be coming from westcork Please think about it for next year.
