Where: Meet in the foyer of Nemo Ranger's Trabeg Sports Centre at 7pm every Monday, except Bank Holidays.
This route is aimed at beginners - Ladies who are new to running - they are not expected to run all the way and walk breaks are allowed - a group leader stays with anyone finding the run difficult. Estimated time to cover the 2.86 miles; approx. 35 minutes.
Starting at the Centre, cross the South Douglas Road (aka "Back" Douglas Road) and up Tramore Lawn, we then stop for a stretch at Marian Rose properties on the Douglas Road. This is after about 0.5 Mile. After that we head towards Douglas, turning left into Woodview before taking another left up the Well Road towards Lovett's Roundabout. This is the hardest section, with about 0.5 mile uphill. We stop for another stretch session here before continuing. From here we head towards the Silver Key pub, taking a left onto Ballinlough Road. Continue on until taking a left at Somerton, followed by a right onto south Lodge, left again into Browningstown, followed by a right and immediate left, bringing us back onto the Douglas Road at Johnson & Perrott's garage. Take a left here and an immediate right back into Tramore Lawn. Right at the bottom and immediate left and back down to Nemo.
How to get there:
From the Cork City: Head towards Douglas on the South Douglas Road. Take the first right approx. 200m after the Texaco petrol station (on your right) and go straight down to the end where, after about 1/4 mile, the road turns left. The gated entrance to Nemo is almost straight in front of you as you turn.
From the N22 (from the west): Take the N22 eastward, taking the FIRST slip road for Douglas. Go left at the next mini-roundabout on the South Douglas Road, heading towards Cork City. Passing O'Sullivan's Chemist (on your left), take the THIRD next left and continue as above.

Health & Safety:
You will be running with a small group, probably with a group leader. During times of the year when the run is in darkness or twilight, you are strongly advised to wear a Hi-Hiz jacket, bib, vest of belt. Remember YOU are responsible for your own safety. The biggest danger is from cars and motorists rarely hit things they see. Be wise - be seen!
