From the organisers......Clonakilty Road Runners AC are delighted to invite you to our 10 Mile and 5K Road Race which takes place on August Sunday 28th 2016.

The 10mile course takes in some of the finest scenery in West Cork (which may include the odd small hill). Our end of summer event is perfectly placed in the calendar to put all that summer training to the test or perhaps to check your Dublin Marathon training progress!

We also have a lovely, flat 5K option which we hope we will appeal to all fitness levels - We are extending a very warm welcome to all beginners and walkers!

This is the 3rd running of this event and has gone from strength to strength. Both the 10 Mile and 5K routes are accurately measured and are approved by Athletics Ireland.  This is a well organised event that attracts all levels of runners. We look forward to seeing you on August 28th and giving you a great day of running in Wonderful West Cork.

The Race Start & Finish is at The Model Railway Village,  Inchydoney Road, Clonakilty. We hope you’ll join us for a cuppa and a few buns there afterwards!

Category prizes and course record bonuses.

Once again this year both races will be chip timed. Limited registration will be available on the day.
