With it being so close to the M8 motorway, it should attract runners from a wide catchment area.
Directions...Cahir is located in the south of Tipperary, just off the M8 motorway from Cork to Dublin...
If you are coming from the motorway, follow all the signs for Cahir. This will take you into the centre of the town and this T-junction shown below. Cahir Castle is about 300m to your left but you need to turn right here and drive up the hill. The start line is outside Morrisons Garage which you will see on the left.
Course......The 4 mile race takes in a loop to the south and west of the town...
Race HQ is Morrisons Garage with the race starting and finishing just outside.
You can see a full preview of the course with photos here... http://munsterraceroutes.blogspot.ie/2013/02/tipperary003.html
