Preview of the Cork Airport 5k...

For visitors to the city, Cork Airport is located of the R600 Cork-Kinsale road.

As courses go, it doesn't get much simpler. The race starts and finishes next to the Terminal building and the route is down and back the main runway.

As you might expect, the course is essentially flat or at least the gradient is very very gradual. Considering that it is over 500ft above sea level and about 15 miles from the ocean, it is an exposed spot and the wind is likely to be a bigger factor than any gradient.
