Notice...Mealagh Valley 10 mile road race - Sun 22nd Feb 2015

This 10 mile road race is coming up in the Mealagh Valley near Bantry in West Cork on Sunday the 22nd of February 2015. Organised by Bantry AC, it has been measured accurately by Jones Counter and has an Athletics Ireland licence.

It's probably best described as a small but well organised 10 mile race in a small secluded valley near Bantry in West Cork. It's not one for setting personal best times but it's in a nice quiet location.

Funds raised from the race go towards The Mealagh Valley Community and the Build4Life Cystic Fibrosis charity.

You can pre-enter HERE for €15 or on the day for €20.

5 k Fun Run......For those who may find the thought of a hilly 10 mile race too tough then there is also a 5 km fun run on offer for runners, joggers and walkers. You can find a preview of the 5k route HERE

The race now has a new website. All the info is there including maps, directions, past results, etc. Visit

The Mealagh Valley 10 mile race is a very special event which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone interested in a tough but very rewarding experience. Great preparation for Ballycotton in two weeks time. Top marks to Geraldine and the local community who put in a huge effort every year.
