Waterford......Marine Climb 6 - Fri 16th April 7pm

Summer has arrived and the evening racing season gets off to a great start with the Marine Climb 6 in Dungarvan, which is the first race in the Ger Wyley Summer Series.

Note: This is a point-to-point race, outbound from the waterfront in Dungarvan to the Marine Bar, Ring, and attracted 214 runners in 2009.
You may need to make car sharing arrangements to get back to the start point.

Entry fee: 8€ at St. Joseph's primary school, Dungarvan (next to the church).

The race starts on the waterfront near the school. From what I can recall, there were two important announcements last year :-
  • AAI Permit and insurance only covers the race. It does not cover runners returning from Ring, and it may be getting dark by then.
  • Keep to left at all times when running on the N25 main road.
The first half of this race may seem deceptively easy, running on reasonably flat roads.
As soon as you take the left turn into Ring, the 'climb' begins. There are two hair-pins bends on this stretch of road. There was at least one well appreciated water-station on this section last year. I've only been on one tougher hill climb race myself ;o)
There is a slight down-hill section approaching the finish at the Marine Bar.
