Notice...Cloyne 5km road race - Tues 2nd Aug 2016

The Cloyne 5k takes place in East Cork on Tuesday, the 2nd of August at 8pm. As races go, this is a reasonably flat and fast course. There are no real hills as such, just a few short sections where the road rises by a few metres at most. Outside of the Marina course in Cork City, it doesn't get much flatter. If you want to try for a fast 5k time, then this is the one to do.

If you are coming from the Cork city, then Cloyne is just a 22-25 minute drive from the Jack Lynch tunnel. Considering the number of runners within say a 30 minute drive of it, the race is likely to attract a large crowd.

From the organisers...In order to ease the pressure on the night of the Cloyne 5k Road Race on 2nd August we will be taking pre-registrations on the Monday night beforehand in two venues: Mon 1st Aug...Tesco in Midleton 6pm-8pm AND in Cloyne National School from 6pm-8pm.

On race day we will open registrations from 3:00pm in the School hall.
