Notice...Ardfield 5k & 10k road race, Clonakilty - Sun 12th Oct 2014

Every year, the Clonakilty Marathon passes through the small village of Ardfield as it winds its way along the coast near Galley Head. It is probably one of the nicest parts of the course with extensive views out over the West Cork countryside and the ocean.

Next Sunday the 12th of October, there is a 5 km and 10 km road race in the village. Both courses have been accurately measured by Jones Counter and the event has an Athletics Ireland licence.

The village of Ardfield is just 6 kms to the south of Clonakilty...

Registration for the race is at Mountain House which is just to the south of Ardfield. You can register on the Saturday between 5pm and 7pm or on the morning of the race from 11am. The 5k costs €10 and the 10k costs €15.

From the race organisers...Following on from the success of last year’s event, the Ardfield Rathbarry Playground Group are getting ready for this years Ardfield Road Run on October 12th 2014.  The run consists of both a 5Km and 10Km and all levels of fitness are welcome – as the logo goes ‘Walk It, Run It, Race It’. Both are very enjoyable courses that start and finish in Ardfield village and take in spectacular views from Inchydoney to the Galley Head with the last 3km of both courses being the same adding greatly to the occasion.

This year the event has an AAI permit and will be chip timed. The race is ideal timing for athletes competing in the Dublin City marathon and for anyone preparing for the local Clonakilty Waterfront marathons being held in December.

Registration will take place at the Mountain House, Ardfield on Saturday 11th October from 5pm till 7pm and on the day from 11am.  The race begins at 12.30pm.  The entry fee is €10 for the 5K and €15 for the 10K.  Post race refreshments will be served in the local GAA complex. Further details can be found on the Ardfield Rathbarry Playground Group Facebook page. A fun and challenging afternoon is guaranteed by the organisers - whatever the weather!
