Route Description:
Curragh Woods is a firm favourite of many locals for the variety of trail it offers within such a small distance. This new Route put together by Johnny O Flynn can only be described as a trail running rollercoaster! Without a doubt do not wear road runners or you will be very sorry (or very slow). Be afraid ….be very afraid! :) Short route 4.6k. Aprox 200m elv Reg open at 9.30
Getting There:
From Cork, take the N25 east toward Midleton. Take the Midleton off-ramp through the Knockgriffin Industrial Estate (and bypass the centre of Midleton). Take a left onto the R626 and head 3km northwest to the main Curragh Woods car park on your left.

From Tipperary/Limerick, take the M8 south toward Cork and take the fist Watergrasshill off-ramp. Go straight through the roundabout and the very first left toward Leamlara. At the shrine in Leamlara take the left to Midleton and Lisgoold. In Lisgoold take the R626 south toward Midleton and travel 4.5km before the Curragh Woods car park on your right.

Volunteers (Running)

Check with race director if they have a need for people volunteering and running. Race directors need a minimum number of people available throughout the race to make the race work so non-running volunteers are preferable. While it can be helpful, volunteering in a volunteer and race capacity does not count towards qualifying for end of year prize
