Another great race. This is my 2nd year doing it and I will be back again, mainly for the spread after :-)
Nice flat course and a new PB to add to it. It's no wonder why it keeps going from strength to strength.

Great event. All credit to the organisers and the people of Cloyne. I've done alot of these races over the summer and this was amongst the most enjoyable. These events are fantastic for the spirit of communities and should be actively encouraged in other towns. Good to see youngsters out too, alot of people seem not to like kids running but i think it makes it a more inclusive event without devaluing it. Perhaps an earlier start time for U-18s would suit everyone.

As always the cloyne 5 k did not dissapoint once again. The numbers were up again and will continue to increase . The ballintotus 4 miler and the cloyne 5 k are without doubt the two best races in the county of cork. Lovley courses great spread of food afterwards plenty of stewards no compliants bring on 2014.
