Notice...St.Luke's Home 5k road race, Mahon - Thurs 10th Sept 2015

This is a brand new 5km race on the calendar and it should prove to be a popular one. The St.Luke's Home 5km run is on in Mahon on Thursday the 10th of September and it starts at 7pm.

Here are some of the reasons why it should get a good turnout......
1) It is at a time of year when most of the mid-week evening races have stopped.
2) It is in Cork City with a huge number of runners within its catchment area.
3) The 5km course is very fast, has an Athletics Ireland permit and has been accurately measured by Jones Counter.
4) 80% of it is on quiet public walkway.
5) Finishers get a 20% discount voucher for John Buckley Sports which could easily result in savings in excess of the entry fee.
6) All proceeds go to St.Lukes Home which is a registered charity.
