Countdown to race day!

The Great Railway Run is a running event organised by the Carrigaline & District Lions Club with the support of Carrigaline AC.

Proceeds from the event will go towards Lions Club charities and Carrigaline AC new clubhouse and running track.

The 25K road race takes place ​along the route of the old railway line from Cork city to Carrigaline.

The predominantly flat route passes through Blackrock, Rochestown, Passage, Monkstown, Raffeen and Shanbally before finally finishing at the Lions Youth Centre on Church Road, Carrigaline.

The 25K is an ideal event to test pace and fitness before the Cork City Marathon. Entries will be limited to 500 for safety reasons so make sure to register early. An ealy-bird discount is available for the first 150 entries. A bus service is provided between start and finish locations. Bus (€3) including return baggage transfer can be booked when registering.
