Race notice...Cork City Marathon 5k race - Sat 27th Apr 2013

Even though the new Tramore Valley Park is not yet open to the public, we can see that a number of events are going to be held there this year. Considering it's central location, ease of access and the fact that there is no traffic to be concerned about then it's likely to become even more popular.

Back in February, there was the Operation Transformation 5k in the park and it attracted a huge number of people who ran, jogged and walked the route.

As part of the build up to the 2013 Cork City Marathon, the city council are holding a 5k race in the park on Saturday, the 27th of April at 11am.

 The 5k is organised in conjunction with the Cork BHAA. This event is geared towards anyone who is preparing to do the relay event in the Cork City Marathon. It might be an ideal chance for teams to see what their fitness level is like before the big day itself on the 3rd of June.

The entrance fee is €10 and there will be plenty of spot prizes given out on the day.

As you can see from the map above, access to the park is from the South Link Link. The rough outline of the course is shown in green and is basically two 2.5 km loops.

Can you walk/run or is it just running?

This one would be suitable for all standards....from speed merchants to the casual jogger. Run/walk would be fine.

There is plenty of parking inside the park which can be access from the South Link Road.
