Kilmacsimon Rowing Club Run...Sun 11th Feb 2018


 The Kilmacsimon 10k run & 6km run/walk is coming up in Kilmacsimon near Inishannon in Co.Cork on Sunday the 11th of February 2018...


 Kilmacsimon Quay is located on the west bank of the Bandon River as it flows from Inishannon to Kinsale...


 If you are coming from say an easterly direction then note that there are only two bridges over the Bandon River where you can cross.....one in Inishannon and one in Kinsale. If you are coming from Cork City then the easiest way to get there is to take the N71 road to Bandon. After you pass through Inishannon, you will cross over a bridge as you leave it. About 100 metres later, take the left turn at the junction on the bend. This road follows the west bank of the Bandon River and after about 3 miles / 5kms, you'll come to Kilmacsimon Community Centre which is located on the left. The entrance may not be so obvious so watch out for it.


 The photo below shows the road junction just after Inishannon. Take the left which is signposted for Ballinadee and Ballinspittle. Remember, you are following the river south.


  This is the 10km course and the start and finish line is near the Community Centre. There are some slight changes in the course for 2017 which will remove some hills.



  This is the 6km course....



  Both courses have an uphill start....then some flat running on higher ground......and then a fast downhill finish.

  There will be post race refreshments as well as separate male and female changing rooms with hot showers.
