Preview of the Cork BHAA 'Army/Navy' 5 mile road race - 29th August 2007 (Wednesday 7:30pm)

Only 2 more evening races to go on the Cork BHAA calendar and this is the 2nd last one. The sign-on, start and finish is in the Naval base near Ringaskiddy.

Directions - Just get to Ringaskiddy, drive straight through and when the road is about to end, take the left towards the Naval base. Once you get to the base, there will be Navy personnel directing you to the parking area.

Course details - The start and finish points are in the Naval base itself. The course goes back towards Ringaskiddy and just as you are entering the town, you take a sharp left and climb 500 m up a steep hill. After that, the course is pretty much ok. There are some small drags but nothing major.

So overall, it's not a bad race. Going on last year's entry, I'd expect the turnout to be around the 180 to 200 mark. Just remember the start time, 7:30 pm, not the usual 8pm.
