Race notice...Passage West Community 10k road race - Fri 25th Apr 2014

Following the success of the inaugural 10k race in Passage West last year, various clubs and organisations in the town have come together again to organise a 10 km race for the 25th of April 2014.

Located to the south-east of Cork City and just a 10 minute drive from the South-Ring road, this 10k race is in close proximity to a lot of people...

The course itself takes in waterfront walkways and some country roads to the west of the town. It certainly isn't an easy course and it can be split into two halves. The first 3.5 miles are pretty flat while there are some 'nice' hills in the second half ;o)

This is a proper road race in every sense of the word. Leevale AC have been involved in getting the course measured properly by Jones Counter. It also has an Athletics Ireland licence.

The local GAA club are offering their facilities for registrations, changing area, showers, post race refreshments and prize giving. Supervised car parks are available at the GAA grounds and the Soccer club.

Proceeds from this years race go towards the Cork City Hospitals Children's Club. During the year, they bring sick and deserving children from CUH, Mercy Hospital, St. Gabriel's and the Cork Deaf Association on numerous trips, as well as hosting many fun and exciting events.
