Start of the East Cork 3 km series in Midleton...Tues 20th Oct (7:30pm)
East Cork AC kick off their winter series of 3 km road races on Tuesday evening, the 20th of October at 7:30pm. If you are coming from Cork, take the bypass and at the main roundabout, take the 3rd exit and the road south towards Whitegate. After the Topaz garage, take the 2nd right. Entries are taken at one of the parked cars.

What is it???...........Basically, the race itself is 3 loops of a 1km circuit just to the South of Midleton in East Cork. No prizes, no refreshments or anything like that. It's just a 3k run. Entry fee is about €3. The start time for each race is 7:30pm. There will probably be around 100-120 runners taking part.

Note of Caution....If you are doing this race, remember it is in a residental area. The organisers depend on the goodwill of the local residents so that this race can continue. Please keep this in mind when parking, warming up and so on.

Reflective vest........Part of this race is on the hard shoulder of the Midleton to Whitegate road. The organisers request that you wear a reflective bib or vest for the race.
