Preview of the Liscarroll 10 km road race - Fri 3rd Sept 2010

This 10km road race in Liscarroll in North Cork is the 7th and final race in the very successful Ballyhoura Active Summer Series. The race starts at 7:30pm and is likely to attract a reasonable crowd. The entry fee is €10.

Getting there....Liscarroll is a few miles west of the N20 Cork - Mallow - Limerick road. If you are driving north from the Cork / Mallow then look for the turn off left in the town of Buttevant. Look for the R578 to Liscarroll. It should be the 2nd major turn to the left on the northern end of the town. Once in Liscarroll, look for the Community Centre near the GAA pitches.

Course....It basically is in the shape of a spoon and looks likely that it will be a very flat and fast course. You start on the northern side of the town. You head north taking a left just after the 1 mile mark, complete the loop clockwise and you rejoin the road just before the 5 mile mark and run back into the town.

Allow yourself plenty of time for Friday evening traffic, finding the registration and getting to the start.
