You will not find a course like this anywhere ….truly unique! Starting on road, you will cross an estuary (on low tide via a pontoon) on the first of three beaches, The Warren, Rosscarbery, then climb up the the newly upgraded cliff walk, from where you will see out over Rosscarbery Bay and The Galley Head, then down to Beach No 2, Owenahincha, along the road to entrance of Castlefreke Castle, privately owned and open solely for this event!
Running through the castle grounds and Castlefreke woodland area onto fabulously maintained Trail paths (maintained by Coillte) up to Lord Carbery Cross (a nice little pull up, but so worth the views!) and then more trails around Kilkern Lake and on to Beach No. 3 The Long Strand, a mile of sand running which brings you back onto the Owenahincha road heading for home, back over Cliff Walk , across Warren Beach and loop onto Warren Road for Finish (the best crab- fishing spot in the area) !
