Cork to Cobh. Always a great atmosphere at the finish. Nice course and brilliantly organised. Great value. The fact people travel from all over the country to take part speaks volumes about the race.

Has to be Cork to Cobh, unique race, distance & atmosphere. Ideal prep for Dublin marathon too. Great value. The "ritual" of getting the train back to city is also cool.

Cork to Cobh for me as well. Great organisation as well as terrific value for money.

I found all the 5k races very enjoyable especially Novartis and John Buckley
