Road Closures for the 2018 Cork City Marathon...

From the organisers...Full list of road closures and travel advice for Sunday 3rd June 2017

Travel Advice: There will be major traffic restrictions throughout the city on race day but the general advice is to use the city’s Ring and Link roads when possible. You can drive into the city centre, but allow plenty of time to get to your start line. Contra-flows will operate in the Jack Lynch Tunnel, on the South Ring Road to Mahon and on the South City Link.

The Park & Ride service from the Black Ash centre, on the South City Link (N27), into the city centre will operate every 10 minutes from 07.30 to 19.15. The service costs €5 for the day. Participants and spectators are urged to use this facility and leave your car outside the city centre. The bus will bring you into the centre, a minute’s walk from the City Hall.

ROAD RE-OPENING SCHEDULE (times are approximate)

Please note that the Marathon (8.30am) and Half Marathon (10.15am) start times are a half hour earlier than in previous years.

Road closures begin at 5.30am on St Patrick’s Street and adjoining streets. All other closures are put in place from 7.30am.

totally crazy that the city is closed up by a bunch of runners. If you want to run then go to a running track or sports stadium. Get off the roads and leave them to the vehicles that have paid their taxes to use them.
