Waterford...Ardmore 5 Mile road race - Fri 14th Aug 2009

The 10th and final race of the Ger Wyley / Nike Summer Series takes place in Ardmore, West Waterford at 7:30pm on Friday, the 14th of August.

Directions........If you are coming from the Cork direction, take the Youghal bypass and look for the turnoff right for Ardmore. At the crossroads in the centre of the village, take a left and the GAA pitch is a few hundred metres out this road on the right.

Course.....the start point is about 1 km from the GAA hall. The route is then basically a large loop circuit that you run 1.5 times........i.e. You start out in the countryside, you run into Ardmore, then back into the countryside again and complete the loop.......pass the start point again and then finish in Ardmore itself. There are a few small drags but nothing serious.

Overall.........this race in the West Waterford seaside town seems to attract a large crowd. As well as the usual West Waterford crew, it attracts a fair few runners from Cork considering that it's only just East of Youghal.
