Directions...See below...

All of the races are held in trails in Millstreet Country Park which is to the north of Macroom...

From the western side of Macroom, it is 13.8 kms to the Millstreet Country Park. It's 7.4 kms to a signposted crossroads where you turn left and then a further 6.4 kms to the Park.

If you are not familiar with Macroom then drive trough the town, past the entrance to Macroom Castle, down and over the bridge on the western side of the town and then right.

If you know of the Mill Road which goes around to the north of the town then take that.

Either way, you'll come out at the point shown below. Proceed up the hill. The Park is 13.8 kms from here.

This is the crossroads at 7.4 kms from Macroom. The Brown signpost of the Millstreet Country Park shows the way to the left.

From here, just keep going straight and the entrance to the Millstreet Country Park is at the top of the hill.

The 10k, 5k and 1.5 courses are shown below...
