Next big race in Cork....the Belgooly AC 4 Mile - 26th Dec
This 4 mile road race in Belgooly on the way to Kinsale is a bit of a Christmas tradition for a lot of people and is likely to attract well in excess of 500 entries. The race starts at 12 noon and with the big numbers entering, you should try and get there early to avoid the queues.

Note that the entry fee is €10 and 50% of that will be donated to the Bowel Cancer Treatment Fund at Cork University Hospital.

A flyer for the race can be seen HERE.

A rough preview of what the course is like can be found on the Belgooly AC website.

Note that this year, the start and finish points have been moved slightly and the course has been re-measured by John Quigley of Eagle AC.

With the current cold snap, you might be wondering if there is any chance that the roads will be icy and that the race might be cancelled? The current forecast is that the temperatures will rise to about 5 - 7 deg C in the next 48 hours and that should be enough to get rid of any ice.

Anonymous is right, 4 miles is far too much. How about 20 Euro and we can all stay in bed.
