The inaugural Killeagh 4 mile road race was held on Sunday the 13th of March 2016 and attracted a field of 246 runners. In contrast to the Ballycotton 10 last weekend, the weather was dry and mild and made for pleasant conditions for runners and spectators alike.
The race attracted some of the top runners in Cork with Colm Sheehan of Leevale AC winning the men's race. Colm finished 3rd recently in the 3000m at the National Senior Indoor Track & Field Championships in Athlone.
The women's race was won by Aoife Cooke of Youghal AC who of course won the Ballycotton '10' last weekend.
