Notice...Cloyne 5k race - Wed 6th Aug 2014

The Cloyne 5k takes place in East Cork on Wednesday, the 6th of August at 8pm. As races go, this is a reasonably flat and fast course. There are no real hills as such, just a few short sections where the road rises by a few metres at most. Outside of the Marina course in Cork City, it doesn't get much flatter. If you want to try for a fast 5k time, then this is the one to do.

If you are coming from the Cork city, then Cloyne is just a 22-25 minute drive from the Jack Lynch tunnel. Considering the number of runners within say a 30 minute drive of it, the race is likely to attract a large crowd.

Any idea if pre entry will be available the day before? Would be ideal if they expect a bigger crowd than last year.
