Boherbue to Kiskeam 4 mile road race - Easter Monday 24th of March (2pm)
Just found out about this one today. This 4 mile race is in North West Cork, just North of the N72 Mallow to Killarney road. You basically need to get to Boherbue and then carry on until Kiskeam. You register in Kiskeam and a bus will take you to the start point back in Boherbue. You then run the 4 miles back to Kiskeam. If you are going, make sure you get there early to catch the bus.
Here is some additional info...
On Easter Monday the action moves to Kiskeam where Gneeveguilla AC holds the traditional Jack O’Keeffe Road Races. The main event here will be the Boherbue to Kiskeam four-mile race which gets underway at 2pm.
This also includes a walking section and there is a T-shirt for all finishers. Entry fee is €12 for senior runners and €8 for U19.
There is a large prize list with awards going to the first ten men and first six women, along with the first two masters’ in all the usual categories along with U15, U17 and U19 prizes.
The first three men’s teams (four to score) and first two women’s team (four to score) will also receive awards.
Juvenile races for boys and girls (born 1994 to 2004) get the proceedings underway in Kiskeam village at 1pm with the Jack O’Keeffe Cup going to the best national school on the day.
