Reminder...The Great Railway Run 5km, 10km or 25km - Sun 23rd Apr 2017

The big race in Cork this weekend is of course the Great Railway Run on Sunday the 23rd of April 2017. There is 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 11am or a 5 km run/walk from Ringaskiddy to Carrigaline starting at 11:45am.

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.

Route Change...Please note that there is a slight change to the route this year in that there is a short out and back section near Shanbally.

You can find details of the 2017 route HERE
