Notice...Eyeries 5 mile road race, West Cork - Sat 11th Nov 2017

This is the 4th year of the Eyeries 5 mile road race and follows on the success of the previous three years. The Beara Peninsula in West Cork is one of the most scenic parts of the country and an ideal backdrop for this road race in November. It might well suit any clubs or small groups who are looking for a day or weekend away.

On a nice sunny day, it's an absolutely stunning spot. The town of Castletownbere is only 4.5 miles away so there is plenty of accommodation on offer.

From the organisers.....EYERIES 5 MILE ROAD RACE...We are hopeful of continued local support and also the support of runners in the wider Cork and south-western area which we have got over the last three years.

The event has attracted fields of up to 300 runners which is no mean feat in this part of the world. This is due in no small part to an appreciative running community that recognise our endeavours to have a well run event. In the spirit of rewarding as many as we can, we place a big effort in covering all categories with prizes. We have over 50 prizes on offer again this year.

Race proceeds are in aid of Beara AC which is being reformed and will be Cork's latest athletics club from January 2018. We are very excited by this and the opportunities that it will give to young and old in Beara. Its is our priority to offer our youth the opportunity to participate compete at the many athletics events that are on offer throughout the calendar.

Or Register on the Day: begins at 12 noon on the day (11 November 2017) in Eyeries Hall. €12.00 per person if registering on the day.

In November, this stunning part of West Cork can be very quiet and I'm sure they would appreciate all the support that they can get.
