Preview of the Touraneena 5km road race - Mon 2nd June (7:30pm)
For anyone not taking part in the Cork City Marathon or Relay, there is a 5 km road race in Touraneena in West Waterford later on Monday evening at 7:30pm. This small village is located roughly halfway between Dungarvan and the town of Clonmel.
From Cork, take the Youghal bypass and the bridge over the Blackwater. A few miles after that, look for the turn off left for Clashmore (R671). Just stay on this road, accross the main N72 road and carry on towards Clonmel. Look for signs for Touraneena. An alternative route would be to go as far as Dungarvan and take the road for Clonmel.

James Veale of West Waterford AC supplied the following information...
"There's a 100 meter hill to the finish line as you come back into the village, but it would be considered a flat course. Coming from Cork, going through Clashmore, keep on the road for Clonmel, two miles of the race are on the Clonmel-Dungarvan road and the village Touraneena is off the Clonmel road which will be well signposted.
