Preview of the Kinsale 5 mile Road Race - 3rd of August 2007. (Updated 31st July)

This 5 mile road race takes place at 8pm next Friday evening, the 3rd of August. Registration is at the GAA grounds which are above the town.

Directions - When you enter the centre of Kinsale, the harbour is on your left. At the next T-junction, go straight ahead rather than following the road around to the left. At the next T-junction, take the left and drive up the hill. Near the top of the hill, you'll see the GAA grounds. Registration is usually here. Click on the image above for a more detailed look.
Course - This has a reputation of being one of the fastest 5 mile courses around. Basically, the first 2 miles are more or less downhill and the last 3 miles are very flat alongside the river. The finish is in the town itself.
