Preview of the Doneraile Park Trails 5 km race - Fri 4th June 2010 (8pm)

This is the 3rd race of 8 in the new Ballyhoura Active Summer Series and is a repeat of the 1st race which took place here back on the 30th of April. The races in Doneraile Park are organised by Mallow AC and it is a great spot for a cars, nice trails and a nice scenic backdrop. If you have never seen the park before then it's well worth the trip. It's a real pity that we don't have something like Doneraile Park closer to Cork City!

I know it's only 3 days before the Cork City Marathon & Relay so it certainly would not be advisable to race it. However, as a light training run it would be fine.

The race starts at 8pm. More info on the Race Series website

Getting there....
If you are coming from Cork, then head North from Mallow on the main Limerick road and turn right at New Two Pot House. Follow this road to Doneraile.

The entry fee is only €5 so no complaints there. Last entries are at 7:30pm.

Talk by Sonia O'Sullivan...
Just a reminder that Sonia O'Sullivan will be giving a talk at the Springfort Hall Hotel in Newtwopothouse at 9pm. The cover charge is €5 and the proceeds go to Awbeg Valley AC who are a juvenile athletic club.
