This is a charity event where participants walk the 21kms from Haulbowline to Páirc Uí Chaoimh in Cork City. This is pretty much the same as doing a half-marathon.
This might make a nice excuse for a walking club or group to do a walk run with a difference.
The route is shown above.
a) The section from Haulbowline to Shanbally is all on a good footpath.
b) Shanbally to Raffeen is on road but it’s reasonably quiet.
c) Raffeen to Murph’s Pub. This is the worst section. Normally this is a dangerous section and it’s not really suitable for walkers or runners. However, the traffic should be a lot slower with the event stewards and the number of people on the road.
d) Murph’s Pub to Passage West is all on footpath.
e) Passage West to Blackrock Castle is on a scenic Greenway.
f) Blackrock Castle to Páirc Uí Chaoimh is on a footpath.
Charity… This event is organised by the Down Syndrome Centre Cork.
Entry fee… This is €10 but you can always contribute more.
The organisers write… “To support our work, we are asking all those that join us for Challenge 21 to aim to raise €21 from 21 people before walking the 21 km. Of course, we would be delighted with any funds raised, but it is always good to have a goal in mind 🙂”

As this is a linear run/walk going from point A to point B, you’ll probably have to arrange your own travel arrangements.
