Notice...Youghal 4 mile road race - Thurs 10th July 2014

This 4 mile road race is coming up in the town of Youghal in East Cork on Thursday, the 10th of July 2014...

This is the second year of this race in its current format having been a regular fixture on the race calendar back in the 90's. Back then, the Youghal bypass hadn't been constructed and the traffic through the town was very heavy making the road race somewhat congested. Fast forward to today and all of the heavy traffic now bypasses the town and the streets of Youghal are suitable once more for a road race.

With it's location near the county boundary, the race is sure to attract runners from both East Cork and West Waterford.

The course consists of three loops of a flat fast course on the streets of the historic town and passes under the iconic Youghal Clock Tower...

Organised by Youghal AC, this race has an Athletics Ireland licence and has been measured accurately by Jones Counter.
