Race notice...Cork BHAA Mount Oval 6 mile - Sun 17th Nov 2013

This Cork BHAA 6 mile road race is coming up on Sunday, the 17th of November 2013 at 11am. Organised in conjunction with the Mount Oval Bar, this one is just to the south-east of the city on nice country roads and is very easy to get to.

Mount Oval is just off the N28 road to Carrigaline. It's very easy to get to from the South Ring Road in Cork City...
It certainly wouldn't be described as an easy 6 mile course as there are a number of hills. I use part of this course a lot on my own training runs for the simple reason that it's reasonably quiet and safe and it's in the countryside. Once the early hill is out of the way, the rest is pretty reasonable. Weather permitting, it should make for a good race.

 As with all Cork BHAA races, the entry fee for registered runners is just €5 and €8 for the non-reg. As per usual, there will the usual feast afterwards! ;o)

They are also looking for some race stewards if you can help out? Contact Greg Moore at 012 4898162.
