A quick look ahead to races in Cork over the Christmas period...
With the Christmas holiday period coming up next week, it might be worth looking ahead to see what is on offer in the Cork area.

Sat 19th.......there is Shanagarry Christmas 5k in East Cork. This is a low key event and is likely to attract less than 100 runners.

Sun 20th......there is the Newmarket to Kanturk 5 mile road race. This one has a reputation of being a fast course and will probably attract a lot of runners from Cork, Limerick and Kerry.
Tues 22nd.....there is a 3k race in Midleton in East Cork at 7:30pm.

Fri 25th......there is the charity GOAL mile at various locations. The event in Cork city is at the CIT track on Christmas morning.

Sat 26th......there is the Belgooly 4 mile race. This is a huge race and running in it is a bit of a Christmas tradition for many people. It will probably attract in excess of 500 people.

Mon 28th........there is Bandon 5 mile road race. This year, the start time has been changed to the morning which should help.

So overall, there are no shortage of events if you any of them take your fancy. Outside of the county, there are other races elsewhere in Munster. More details tomorrow on the Running in Munster website.
