Notice - Shanagarry Christmas 5k...Sat 19th Dec 2015

The annual Shanagarry Christmas 5 km road race is coming up next Saturday, the 19th of December at 12 noon. Located just 20 or so miles from Cork City, it might of interest to anyone wanting to try a short local race just before Christmas.

This race is usually a pretty low key event with only about 60-80 runners taking part. There are no big prizes or anything like that, it's just a very simple 5k race which is usually held every year on the weekend just before Christmas day. The entry fee is usually just €3 and any proceeds go towards charity.

Just a note that it wouldn't be unusual for runners to give a fiver or tenner when registering and to tell the organisers to keep the change for GOAL. Not mandatory by any means, it's just something I noticed that quite a few people did last year.

Otherwise, terrific value at €3!

I did that race 20 odd years ago. The turkey trot is a good craic. See you all there 😀
