This session involves one or two 6km circuits of the Carrigrohane Road and Model Farm Road. There is also the option of a few hill repeats after the 6km loop.

All those attending the Monday evening Road session MUST wear a high visibility vest and we strongly recommend light colored clothing.

This is an unstructured run suitable for all levels new to seasoned runners. Everybody sets off at their own pace and nobody gets left behind.

Come along to the barrier at the top of Mardyke Walk and ask for the person in charge. Members assemble at the barrier just before 18:15 to conduct warm-up exercises.

At 18:15 we head off on the first 6km circuit.  After one circuit, we’ll pause at the pink marker and wait for people to catch up (another chance for stretches).

At this point, you can opt for a second lap or return to the Mardyke.

  • Adhere to social distancing guidelines while at the meeting point.
  • High-visibility vests essential
  • The coach for the evening will give clear instructions as to the route.
