Curracloe Wexford

    Looks like we are buying a mobile close to Curracloe, just outside Blackwater.

    Any runners down that way? Beach looks like best bet for runs.

    What's it like to do intervals and tempos on a beach ?

    Lucky you, lovely spot for a mobile. I always found Curracloe great for running. You can pretty much run from Blackwater down to Ravens point, although I think the tide might come in very close down towards the point so sand might be soft. I’ve moved from the area so haven’t been down that far in a while.

    One thing to watch is the wind. I used to start at Ballinesker and if there was a southerly wind, head down the quiet road parallel to the beach, down through the forest and back up the beach. Vice versa if northerly wind etc

    Not sure on runners, you could contact Menapians in Wexford town or Slaney Olympic in Enniscorthy to see if they do any training runs out there.

    The Raven nature reserve (I.e. “the forest” mentioned above) beside it is a good trail run, although a relatively flat one.

    I tend to stick to the coast road and the forest when I'm running in Curracloe. I'm not a huge fan of beach running.

    Do you not find the coast road busy?
