Waterford...Preview of the Butlerstown 10k - Fri 23rd April 2010

The Butlerstown 10k takes place on Friday evening at 7:30pm. This is the second race in the Ger Wyley Summer Series.

The nearest landmark is the Holy Cross Bar on the old Cork Road.

In 2009, this race attracted 302 runners, despite some rain.

Registration is at the Butlerstown GAA Club.
Parking is limited. There may be spaces available in the GAA club, and the Holy Cross Bar carpark. Please try to avoid parking along the course itself.
Entry fee: 8€ -- quite reasonable.
Compared to last week's Marine Climb 6, this is an easy one :)
It's a circuit, with registration/start/finish all in close proximity.
The distance 10km = 6.2 miles is slightly greater, but terrain is *much* flatter!
The race starts a few hundred metres up the side road outside the GAA club.
You run back towards the Holy Cross Bar, and take a left turn onto the old N25 road, and proceed up to the Butlerstown Roundabout, and left again.
There is a slight hill at about 3/4 ways around the course.
Basically it slightly more than 3 laps of a 2 mile square course.
After completing 3 laps, continue down the road, and turn right into the GAA club.
The finish line will be on the pitch.
Presentation of prizes will be at the Ramada Hotel, which is on the city side of the Butlerstown roundabout.

Note: Since the completion of the Waterford bypass, the main road may no longer be designated the N25, but is now the R680. The Ramada Hotel are quoting GPS /SatNav Coordinates :-
  • Latitude: 52:14:33 N
