Race notice...Tramore Valley 5k - Sat 26th Nov 2011

This new race in Cork City's newest park is coming up on Saturday, the 26th of November at 11am. The old Kinsale Road landfill site is in the process of being delevoped into a new grassland park for Cork City and this is hopefully the first race of many at this venue.

The name of the new park will be the Tramore Valley Park based on the fact that the local river/stream is the Tramore river which begins in the hills to the south of Togher and passes the new park before joining the harbour in Douglas.

The race will be 5 kms in lenght and it is basically 2 laps around the perimeter of the park. The race will cost €8 to enter and all proceeds from the race will be going to Marymount Hopsice.

Prizes: First 5 individual men and ladies thereafter category prizes for men and ladies Over 40, 45, 50, 55 and 60.

First 3 men’s and first 3 lady’s prizes sponsored by The Edge Sports Shop

Other Facilities:    Ample parking facilities near the Start/Finish area. Toilets will also be available. Note that only very limited (if any) changing facilities are available. Please come prepared. Light refreshments served afterwards.
