Notice...East Ferry 5 mile road race - Fri 5th June 2015

In terms of race courses, this must be one of the nicest in Cork. Located just south of Midleton in East Cork, this is just a short drive from Cork City.


I did this course as a training run recently and it really is a lovely location. I think a lot of people drive south of Midleton on the road to Whitegate unaware of what a stunning spot East Ferry is. On a sunny summers evening, there is no better spot for a race.


The race HQ is at the local national school. It has an Athletics Ireland permit and has been measured properly by Jones Counter. After the race, there will be the usual refreshments.

You'll get a good idea from the photos of what a nice location it is.
