2024 Stage 2

Kanturk – Newmarket – Ballydesmond – Castleisland - Killorglin – Waterville – Caherdaniel - Sneem

The race transfers to Kanturk, County Cork, for the start of stage two, which is the hometown of multiple ‘Men of the Rás’ through the years, including our current champion, Dillon Corkery.

Stage two will surely be a telling day in the battle for overall honours.

What can only be described as an epic and arduous 187Km stage awaits the riders with six categorised climbs including early category three’s at both Scartaglen and Milltown.

A further category three strikes at Glencar before the infamous challenge of the category 1 over Ballaghasheen Pass. Later in the stage, the Coomikista category two climb awaits on the ring road towards Sneem.

Once the race enters the finish town, it will pass through the finish line and complete a further 16Km loop, which includes one final category three climb.

Stage two will surely be a telling day in the battle for overall honours.
