This popular 5 km road race is coming up in the town of Newmarket in NW Cork on Sunday the 22nd of December. This is a fast 5k course and gets a good turnout every year.
One change this year is that the race HQ is at the James O'Keeffe Institute. The race start is about one mile from there so they will be closing entries at 12:40pm sharp.
As you can see from the race flyer above, there are lots of generous prizes on offer and the entry fee is €10. To take off some of the pressure on the day, the organisers Duhallow AC are asking people who are intending to run to enter online HERE
Anyone who enters online will be entered into a draw for a Christmas hamper.
Lots more info including directions, photos, course details, etc can be seen HERE
Update...Please note that there is plenty of parking at the Hi-Land complex as well which is near the start line. It may suit someone who wants to drive away straight after the race.
