Key Points for participants and spectators.
As the numbers have grown by 300% over the past four years, the course has changed as we have been forced to avoid the town centre
The start is to the left of the petrol station, just by Davis College. (a few hundred metres from the old start) in a mainly residential area.
The finish is now by the roundabout bar on the main Cork/Limerick Road. While this is not ideal we have struggled to find a better option
Runners will not be allowed run back out the course once finished
Runners will not be allowed use headphones/music players
Once leaving the finish area runners will be asked to use the footbridge to cross the road and return to hall
