Distance: 3.65 Miles
Where: Meet in the foyer of Nemo Ranger's Trabeg Sports Centre at 7pm every Monday, except Bank Holidays.
Description:This route is aimed at "Transition runners", those that are relatively new to running and can cope with the distance but are not yet fit enough or strong enoungh to cover the "standard" 5 miles - M&T Route III. Starting at the Trabeg Sports 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. From here we head left after the Silver Key pub, and straight on to Bel Air (at the girls N.S.) Left here and left again onto Douglas Road. After about 300m, take the first right, onto Cross Douglas Road. At the junction with South Douglas Road, turn left and continue straight ahead for about 0.5 miles, along South Douglas Road until you pass the Texaco petrol station on your right. Immediately after Texaco, cross the road CAREFULLY! and turn right 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.
7pm every Monday, except Bank Holidays.
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!
