Notice…Bere Island Midsummer Run – Sat 8th July 2017

This is quite probably one of the most spectacular spots for a road race in Cork if not the country. Bere Island on a fine day is an amazing spot with the backdrop of Bantry Bay and the Beara Peninsula.

There are plenty of races that are cheaper to enter but none are in such a scenic location. If you are thinking of going then it would really worth considering making a day of it rather than just going for  the race itself.

The races take place in Rerrin village at the eastern end of the island. There are two car and passenger ferries servicing the island...Bere Island Ferries and Murphy's Ferry.

This year thanks to the Cork Sports Partnership, they have special dry fit tops for the first 100 to register...

You can pre-enter online HERE or on the day at the GAA grounds.
