Event notice...Donoughmore 7 mile road race - Fri 19th July 2013

The Donoughmore 7 mile road race is coming up on Friday, the 19th of July 2013. This is the 4th race of 7 in the ongoing Ballyhoura Cork Road Race Series.

As road races go, this one is really unique as it's the only 7 mile road race on the calendar. At first, it might seem like a bit of an odd distance but don''t let that put you off. It's really is a well organised race on country roads to the north-west of Cork City....even if it is a little bit hilly ;o)

Directions...Donoughmore is located about 15 miles north-west of Cork City. If you are coming out the Ballincollig bypass or the Carrigrohane straight, look for directions for the R579 road to Nad / Banteer / Kanturk. Stay on this road for about 10 miles and keep a lookout for the turn off right to Donoughmore. Then follow the signs for Stuake. The village is about 2 miles off the R579 road. See map above.

Entries......Entries are taken at the local community hall in the village. The race entry fee €10 and that includes a T-shirt which is good value. For a complete list of prizes on offer, see the race flyer above.

If you are interested in going then you can pre-enter your details HERE. You can then avoid any queues on the night.

More details in a later post.
