Notice...MMRA Ballyhoura Trail Race - Sun 18th Jan 2015

As well as there been plenty of road races locally, the Munster Mountain Running Association have their own series of trail races on various hills and mountains in the province.

Here is some information from them about their first race of 2015....Race number 1 of 6 in the Munster Sunday League.

From the MMRA....Our next race is in the Ballyhouras on Sun 18th Jan 2015 at  1pm (with our rain jackets in tow!) for an 8km run around the mountains. The run starts from the Mountain Bike Centre and takes you along fire roads all the way around the hill to the car park and viewing point at the far end of the bog. From here, we will follow a single trail across the bog before turning left onto a trail once more. This leads us onto another fire road which takes us back to the cycle centre where we started. As you may expect, you will get muddy so make sure you bring appropriate footwear with you.
This race is open to all* and the cost is €10 for seniors, €5 for juniors. Please arrive at least 30 minutes before race start time to give time for race registration. The adult race will start at 1pm, so please arrive early to avoid queues at registration. Major junctions will be marked and there will be marshals on the course for the juniors. Please ensure that you sign the race sheet at registration before the race. 

Note that all those taking part must be registered with the MMRA. This costs €10 for the year. More info HERE
