Races coming up this week...

There are a number of races coming up this week in Cork.

1) Mon 14th...The graded track and field league continues at 7:30pm at the CIT track in Bishopstown and this time, it includes an 800m and 3k race. If you ever wanted to try a track event without it getting too serious then this is the one.

2) The Cheetah 4 mile race sponsored by John Buckley Sports is coming up on Thursday, the 17th of May. This event is sold out and there are NO entries on the night. More info here on Wednesday.

3) For those of you in Limerick or Clare, there is a 10k race in Sixmilebridge next Friday evening at 6:30pm. One unique feature is the use of pacers for this short distance.

4) Emer Casey 10k....This popular 10k road race in Youghal is coming up next Sunday, the 20th of May. More info in an earlier post. I will have a preview of this race here next Friday. In the meantime, here is a message from the organisers...

The Annual Emer Casey 10K Run which is now in its 6th year, is proudly supporting ongoing research into the early detection of ovarian cancer. Last year, this popular run got 383 runners and just over 600 walkers. Interest this year is very strong, with Youghal AC putting out a strong team for this run and other local clubs pledging their support as well.  Considering the potential catchment area, it should attract a good sized crowd for what is an accurate fast course, with potential for some great PBs and prizes. 

The entry fee for the race is €20 and all proceeds go towards cancer research.

Race HQ on the day will be at Pobalscoil Na Trionóide which is just off the Youghal By-Pass so access won't be an issue on the day. It promises to be a great day out for a great cause with lots of prizes, music, spot prizes and celebrations. We look forward to seeing you there.
Support the women in your life, run the Emer Casey 10k.
