No Bandon Half-Marathon in 2015

Every year, Bandon AC held their annual half-marathon and 10k in May. This year, the club has decided not to hold the event.

Although it wasn't the flattest of courses, it was a nice quiet rural course to the west of Bandon. In 2014, a total of 520 runners took part in this event...221 in the half-marathon and 299 in the 10k.

For sure that's a shame as it was a nice run. Thought it was fairly successful as well given the numbers there?

That's a pity, it's a lovely course, a perfect race for anyone running Cork marathon. Nobody minded the hill, because it was well advertised after the 1st year, 2011. The down hill finish in Bandon town centre was superb.
Hopefully it will be back on the schedule in 2016.

Pity about that. Nice course, good atmosphere. Not a PB course ever but very enjoyable nonetheless.
The calendar is now so full of races will it be the only casualty this year..
