Waterford...Preview of the Clashmore 5 - Fri 28 May 2010

The 9th Annual Old Still Bar Clashmore 5 Mile Road Race takes place at 8pm in Clashmore.

This is the fourth race in the Ger Wyley Summer Series. In 2009, this race attracted a field of 206 runners.

Directions: If you ran in the John Treacy Classic Villierstown 10 two weeks ago, there's a good chance you drove through Clashmore on the way.
From the N25, turn off at Piltown/Kinsalebeg, near Discount Fuels, heading north on the R671.
Also from the N72, turn off near the Welcome Inn, heading south on the R671.

Registration is €8 at the Old Still Bar, which is alongside the river running through the village.

The start line is almost a mile out from the village, on the south side. Allow extra time to get there.
You run back into the village, and head two miles out the other side, and take a right turn and loop back towards the village on a minor road.
Has been described as a "challenging course". This of course means there's a bit of a hill somewhere, but we're promised a downhill finish :)

Refreshments and the prize-giving will take place at the Old Still Bar after the race.
