Event notice...The Great Railway Run - 25km, 10km & 5km - Mon 5th May 2014

This event is usually held on in early November every year. This year, it has been moved to the  Bank Holiday Monday, the 5th of May.There are a choice of three distances.......a 25 km race starting at 9:30am from Cork City to Carrigaline, a 10 km race from Monkstown to Carrigaline starting at 10:45am or a 5 km fun run from Shanbally to Carrigaline starting at 11:30am.

The run will roughly follow the route of the old Cork, Blackrock and Passage Railway which ran from 1850 until 1932.

For a large part of the run, the route will follow the old railway line that skirts the shores of Cork Harbour. Each event will finish at Carrigaline GAA Club. Shower facilities will be available in the GAA Club after the race and there will be bus transport to take runners back to the start areas after the race.

The pre-entry fee is €30 for the 25K and €20 for the 10K until the 1st of May. All proceeds from the event will go towards Carrigaline Lions Club

Pity they have moved it to the same weekend as the Bandon half and 10k, surely that will only hurt attendances at both events ?
