Preview of the Cork BHAA 'Novartis' 5 km Road Race - 8th Aug 2007.

This 5 km road race takes place at 8pm on Wednesday evening, the 8th of August. Registration is in the Novartis plant and the start and finish points are just outside the entrance.

Directions - If you are not sure of where to go, then just follow the signs for the car ferry from Cork city. As you enter Ringaskiddy, take the first right and go up the hill. The Novartis plant is about 1 km up this road on the right.

Course details - This is a hilly 5 km race yet it seems to produce some fast times. The start and finish are more or less in the same spot and the course is a 5 km loop. There are 2 main hills, one is a long drag by the 1 mile mark as you pass Pfizers and the 2nd one is a short hill just at the finish. For a closer look at the course, check out this link...
