For the day that's in it: Togher 5km. Well run from start to finish, and good value shirt and bag with a good cause thrown in for no small measure.

Bweeng 5k

BWEENG 5k. Route was scenic and fast. Spread of food was best I've seen. Chip timing. Dj at finish. Fantastic community spirit. Plenty parking. Prizes were great even for people not winning. Well organised. Lovely atmosphere throughout the day. Would bet my house on the fact that everyone left Bweeng both full up and happy.

Youghal and Cloyne 5ks are hard to beat. Carrigtwohill 5k was really enjoyable 2. For a pb the marina is excellent.

Conna 5k has the best hill (Mountain)

Plenty of quality to choose from.

Only did Ballintotis last year in the 4 mile so couldn't comment on the rest.

The Bweeng 5k by far. The race was so well organised. The food was unreal. They have a great group going out there.

Emer Casey 5km in Youghal, super start to road race season, great reception, great route racing through the historic centre with spectators cheering runners on their laps, attractive prizes, and wonderful spread afterwards. Excellent charity and exemplary community endeavour.

Newmarket 5K - fast, well organized and road closed which is becoming more uncommon due to busier roads.
