Sunday’s AXA Raheny 5 will follow the same course used for 2016 which is outlined below.
The course changed in 2016 due to road works on the Clontarf Road.
Although these works are now complete, we have determined the new configuration of the Clontarf Road is not fit for purpose to our road race.
Having received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the 2016 event which encompassed St. Anne’s Park, the race director and committee decided to continue with this route.
There is a very small change of approximately 100 metres in St. Anne’s Park from the 2016 course.
The first three miles of the course continue the traditional AXA Raheny 5 route, starting on All Saints Park, then turning left onto All Saints Road.
The race then moves left onto Watermill Drive toward Raheny village at that point turning left onto the Howth Road.
The race moves down the Howth Road for just over one mile before turning left onto Sybill Hill and towards the two mile marker.
We then turn left onto Mount Prospect Avenue with St. Anne’s Park on the left hand side and move past the three mile marker, then moving into St.Anne’s Park.
The race moves through St. Anne’s Park taking a loop down the main avenue as highlighted below via the blue arrows and returning onto All Saints Park turning left into the final 900 metres.
There is a right hand turn up Wade’s Avenue onto the back straight followed by two further right turns onto the home straight and the race finish.
Motorists are reminded to expect delays around Raheny Village between 2.30pm and 4pm on Sunday January 29th.
