Notice...Millstreet 5 mile road race - Fri 24th June 2016

The Willie Neenan Memorial 5 mile road race is coming up in the town of Millstreet in NW Cork on Friday, the 24th of June at 8:15pm.

It's an area of the county where there isn't a huge number of races so it should be of interest to runners in both Cork and Kerry.

For the last two years, this was a 10k race but this year it changes to a much faster 5 mile course. When it was a 10k race, the race had a height difference of about 60 metres between the highest and lowest points on the course. With the new 5 mile route, that's down to about 25 metres.

The entry fee is €12 if you pre-enter online HERE. You can also enter on the day for €15. Race HQ is the GAA community hall which is directly across from the church at the western end of the town.

Organised by Millstreet AC, the course has been accurately measured by Jones Counter and has an Athletics Ireland licence.
