Notice...Mitchelstown GM8KM road race - Fri 8th Aug 2014

The 5th race of 6 in the Ballyhoura Cork Series is coming up on Friday, the 8th of August with the GR8KM. As the name suggests, it is an 8 km road race on the roads around Mitchelstown in North-East Cork. Considering it's proximity to the several major roads, it is likely to attract runners from North Cork, Limerick and Tipperary.

With the M8 motorway, Mitchelstown is now only 50 kms or a 35-40 minute drive from Cork City so it's an option for city based runners as well.

The race is organised by the local athletics club...Galtee Runners AC.

Please note that there is a new race HQ and new course this year. The race will start and finish at the new Mitchelstown Leisure Centre.

A map of the course can be seen HERE
