This is a fantastic race and one of the best organised around.The course is a relatively easy one with only one big hill and that is run downhill and no you dont have to run back up it the organisers even provide a bus back to the hall.
The rest of the course is around the town of Youghal which most of you know is relatively flat.Please come out and support this great race even if you only use it as a training run or just jog it. It is for a very worthy cause something each and every one of us have been touched by.If you dont run you can also walk.
