Notice...Donoughmore 7 mile road race - Fri 21st July 2017

The annual Donoughmore 7 mile road race is coming up on Friday, the 21st of July 2017.

As road races go, this one is really unique as it's the only 7 mile road race on the calendar. At first, it might seem like a bit of an odd distance but don''t let that put you off. It's really is a well organised race on country roads to the north-west of Cork City....even if it is a little bit hilly ;o)

Directions...Donoughmore is located about 15 miles north-west of Cork City. If you are coming out the Ballincollig bypass or the Carrigrohane straight, look for directions for the R579 road to Nad / Banteer / Kanturk. Stay on this road for about 10 miles and keep a lookout for the turn off right to Donoughmore. Then follow the signs for Stuake. The village is about 2 miles off the R579 road. See map above.

Entries......Entries are taken at the local community hall in the village and it costs €10 which includes a Donoughmore 7 dry-fit top.

Course Preview....A full preview of the course with maps and photos can be seen HERE

The race is organised by Donoughmore Athletic Club. Their website is
