- Route fully marked
Munster Summer League
Link to strava activity.
Starting across the road from the community centre, the first 0.5 km takes you past an old lime kiln, over a stile into a field, over another stile and down a few steps into a hollow, up a few steps back out of the hollow, and into the trees before emerging on the forestry fire road.
Follow the fire road to its end point at about 1.7km and turn right to take a narrow path up to the trig pillar and communications mast at the summit of Slievereagh at about 3k. At this point, all the climbing is done and it's onto the fire road to continue on a loop back to the start point.
***PLEASE TAKE NOTE***Registration and race start is in 'Davy's Cottage' directly opposite Ballinvreena Community Hall, between Kilfinnane and Garryspillane.

Check with race director if they have a need for people volunteering and running.
