St Finbarr’s AC are pleased to announce that this year’s John Buckley St Finbarr’s AC Cork Half Marathon will take place on Sunday the 8th September 2013. The race will also incorporate the Cork and Munster Half Marathon Championships. The race head quarters will be the Blarney GAA club house, and the race will commence at 11.00.
Altered Flatter, Faster Course for this year’s race!
This year’s race is an out and back course, which will incorporate a looped start in Blarney* before heading out on the Waterloo Road and turning at the Cheese factory entrance in Rathduff, before heading back to the traditional finish area on the Waterloo Road. This altered course takes out the major hill to Grenagh and in total takes out approx. 50 meters of climbing and makes the course significantly flatter and faster.
(* the direction of the loop and starting position may be subject to change)
