Notice...Great Island 10 mile & 4 mile road race, Cobh - Sun 9th Apr 2017

Another big 10 mile road race coming up in Cork in the near future is the Great Island 10 in Cobh on Sunday, the 10th of April 2016 at 10:30am. With the likes of the Dungarvan 10, the Ballycotton 10 and the Mallow 10 selling out early, this one is likely to get a big turn out again.


The event is being organised by Ballymore Cobh AC and 75% of the proceeds go towards the Irish Cancer Society. When this race was first set up in 2010, the organisers had a target of raising €100,000 in the space of 5 years. In 2013, they hit the €100k mark one year early and have now exceeded €150k. The aim now is to continue to raise much needed funds for this charity.

For anyone who wants to do a shorter distance, there is also a 4 mile road race. Anyone considering these races shouldn't be put off thinking it's just for serious runners. It's open to everyone...runners, joggers and walkers...the whole idea is to raise as much money for charity.

The 10 mile race will start at 10:30am while the 4 mile race will start at 10:45am.
