Event notice...Carrigaline 5 mile road race - Sun 16th Feb 2014

This 5 mile road race is coming up in Carrigaline on Sunday, the 16th of February at 11am. Coming three weeks before the Ballycotton '10', it is ideally placed as a test run to check your fitness level  before the big day itself.

The town of Carrigaline is only five miles south of the South Ring Road so it is within easy reach of Cork City. The entry fee is €10 and the organising club Eagle AC will be taking pre-registrations closer to the date if you want to avoid the queues on the day. Please note that entering online is €10, there are no extra handling charges or hidden commissions.

Race HQ is at the local community sports hall where runners can enter on the day. For those who pre-enter in advance, they can skip the queues there and pick up their numbers at the pre-entry desk.

The race is sponsored by The Edge Sports Shop and they will be giving out discount vouchers to all runners on the day. These will entitle you to 20% off on running items and nutrition products. Obviously, the discount may well exceed the cost of the race entry so it might be worth doing for this reason alone.
