Hill and Dales: Tollymore Route Recce
There was a good turnout of elite athletes for the traditional Monday night race route recce. As advertised Newcastle’s Joe McCann and John Kelly led out runs at 6.15 and 6.30.
As always the route starts in the lower car park. It starts heading out the path for the mountain centre. In a change to recent times it does not follow the mountain centre path the whole way out but takes the first left to run along the river to the wooden foot bridge. From the bridge it is pretty much business as usual over the climbs; the only difference being that one of the sections in the trees, on the first climb, is slightly shorter than usual. If it helps you can see the GPS here.
If you missed out on the recce but would like to run the course before Thursday it is already marked out.
