Notice...Dan Byrne Memorial 5k trail race, Doneraile - Fri 30th May 2014


This 5k race in Doneraile in North Cork is the 2nd race of 6 in the Ballyhoura Cork Road Race Series. While it's described as a trail race, it is in reality mostly on narrow roads and paths within Doneraile Park. It would be wrong to think that it's some sort of cross country race or that you need to run through mud or long grass.

Doneraile is located just to the north-east of Mallow so access is very easy from the N20 Cork to Limerick road. If you are coming from say South Tipperary, then it's just off the N73 Mitchelstown to Mallow road.

As for Doneraile Park itself, it really is a lovely spot. It's basically an old country estate and is now a grassland park with some small forested areas. On a sunny evening, it's a superb spot for a race.


The race entry fee is just €5.

Probably the nicest 5k race in the county and great value for 5 euro.
