Notice...Coachford 5 mile road race - Fri 19th Aug 2016

The annual Coachford Autumn Festival 5 mile road race to the west of Cork City is coming up on Friday the 19th of August 2016. Note the 7pm start.

This should be particular interest to anyone west of the city as there aren't that many races in this particular area.

The entry fee is €13 and proceeds from the race go towards Marymount Hospice.

From the organisers...We will have refreshments after the race including reps from Cully & Sully who will be handing out their famous soups. We also have  four students of massage therapy volunteering to do rubdowns after the race. Dressing rooms for changing as well as hot showers are also available. 

There are cash prizes for the first three male and female home.

The local Community are also using the occasion to honour Olive Loughnane in receiving her gold medal recently and they and others will be making  presentations to Olive after the race.
