Considering that Killeagh is on the N25 Cork-Waterford road, the race should have a pretty big catchment area.

As you can see from the course map below, the race takes in a loop to the west of Killeagh. The race finishes at the entrance to the Killeagh GAA grounds which is the race HQ. There will also be changing and shower facilities here.

Note from the organisers.....The race HQ is in Killeagh GAA complex. There is plenty on parking at the GAA grounds and there is a walk way through an estate to the start line.

We would like to thank Niall Guerin of Niall Guerin Construction, NGC for his continued sponsorship of our 4-mile race.

The race has AAI permit and is accurately measured by Jones Counter and will be chip timed.

There are prizes in all the age categories and loads of spot prizes as well with a great spread afterwards. There are also showers and changing facilities available and there is a walk taking place at 10am.
