Ballintotis 4 mile. Great crowd and atmosphere. Free t-shirt, water bottles and good spread afterwards. The ropes at the start dividing the big crowd of runners into their estimated finish time saved a lot of bunching. Handy you could pick up your race number the day before as well. Gortroe 5k.

I thought the Kilcredan 5k was really well organised and teh buzz was great.

on the four mile race I'd go for Ballintotis . The crowd was so big and everything was under control

The Rosscarbery Steam Engine 5k in October is a real gem. Route features two laps of the scenic lagoon and the food afterwards was top notch.
