Notice...Cloyne 5km road race - Tues 1st Aug 2017

The annual Cloyne 5km road race takes place in East Cork on Tuesday, the 1st of August at 8pm. As races go, this is a reasonably flat and fast course. There are no real hills as such, just a few short sections where the road rises by a few metres at most. Outside of the Centre Park Road course in Cork City, it doesn't get much flatter. If you want to try for a fast 5k time, then this is the one to do.

If you are coming from the Cork city, then Cloyne is just a 22-25 minute drive from the Jack Lynch tunnel. Considering the number of runners within say a 30 minute drive of it, the race is likely to attract a large crowd.

From the organisers...The race will be chip timed, and the route (start/finish) and HQ all remain the same as last year.

Pre registrations will take place on Monday 31st July in the following two venues:
-          Tesco, Market Green Shopping Centre from 5.00-8.00pm
-          Cloyne National School, from 5.00-7.30pm

Registrations on the day of the race will open in the School from 3.00pm for anyone that wishes to enter earlier in the day.
