Notice...MMRA Kilworth Woods Trail Run – Wednesday 7th June 2017

If you fancy a break from the roads, there is a nice trail run on in Kilworth on Wednesday 7th June 2017 organised by the MMRA.

The run is on forest paths and trails in Glansheskin Woods  and takes you along along the banks of the Douglas River The run is 6km in distance, with just under 100m elevation gain.

The village of Kilworth is just off the M8 Motorway between Fermoy and Mitchestown.  Use junction 13 ‘Mitchelstown South’ if you’re coming from the Dublin side or junction 14 (Fermoy North) if you’re coming from the Cork side.

This route is perfect to those who are new to trail running and is suitable for all levels of ability. It is also a chance to bring the whole family as there is a junior race for 10 – 16 year olds and a free non-competitive run (accompanied) for kids under 10

This race is open to all and the cost is €5. If you have already run an IMRA race this year, bring the race number given to you at that race as it is valid for the full year. However, if this is your first IMRA race this year, you must purchase yearly IMRA membership for €10 per person. 

The run is part of a wider series of runs taking place across Munster this summer.  As part of the Munster Trail League there will be a trail race somewhere in Munster for 14 consecutive Wednesday evenings from 10th May through to 9th August and there’s a finisher’s t-shirt if you complete 7 runs in the series.
