The Event : This is the first Locha Lua half marathon - based in the Muskerry Gaeltacht in Ballingeary Co Cork and will take place on Easter Saturday 20th April 2019. It follows a relatively flat course winding along the shores of Locha Lua in the stunning Lee Valley.

Runners will first head east on the R584 from Ballingeary turning right in Inchigeelagh village and returning on the scenic South Lake Road to complete the circuit of the lakes which is an exact half marathon distance. There is also a relay option with the change point in Inchigeelagh Village.

The section between Ballingeary and Inchigeelagh is pretty flat. There are a number of climbs in the second half but note that the ascent is never more than 100 feet or 30 metres.

It really is a stunning location and the elevated parts of the course have some nice views.

The race has an AI permit and was measured by Jones Counter. It will also be chip timed.

I often cycled this loop as part of a spin usually starting in Crookstown.
It is VERY scenic. Gorgeous.
