The Blackwater 10 is a 10 mile road race designed to take in the spectacular views of the Blackwater Valley near Fermoy. Based from the picturesque village of Clondulane this ideal location is close to the M8 and N72 and is easily accessed by runners from Cork, Waterford, Limerick, Tipperary and Kerry.
The race will take place on May 21st 2017 at 11am and is also timed on the Munster Running Calendar to offer those runners training for half marathon distance at the Cork City Marathon an ideal preparatory training length.
