Notice - Killeagh 4 mile road race...Sun 5th Mar 2017

This is the second year of this 4 mile race and it's organised by Killeagh Community Healthy Clubs Project in association with Youghal AC. It will be held on Sunday the 5th of March 2017 at 11am.

Considering that Killeagh is on the N25 Cork-Waterford road, the race should have a pretty big catchment area.

As you can see from the course map below, the race takes in a loop to the west of Killeagh. The race finishes at the entrance to the Killeagh GAA grounds which is the race HQ. There will also be changing and shower facilities here.

Note from the organisers.....The race HQ is in Killeagh GAA complex, where we will have registration on the morning of race. There are great facilities there for changing, showers and catering afterwards. There is plenty on parking at the GAA grounds and there is a walk way through an estate to the start line. We will have the race chipped timed as well.

We have been in constant contact with the engineer on site at the road works in Killeagh and we have been informed that it's planned to have the main Cork to Waterford road open to two way traffic this weekend so there should be no traffic delays that would effect anyone attending our race.

In relation to sponsorship we have four confirmed sponsors this year Youghal Credit Union, Midleton TSB, Castlemartyr Resort and Market Green Shopping Centre, with a number of local business helping out as well.

This group have a number of initiatives underway, walking groups, couch to 5k, healthy food demonstrations etc.

What's the story with the roadworks in Killeagh. Will they be finished by the time the race comes around? Got stuck in them going to Dungarvan 10 and would put me off this race if they were still ongoing.

I had the same problem going to Dungarvan . The road works are right at the turn off to go to the Gaa complex in Killeagh . It could be a disaster if they are still ongoing unless they are nearly finished . I did this race last year and it was very enjoyable. So im going to wait and see regarding road works .

Killeagh 4 mile road race committee have been in regular contact with the Engineer on site at the road works in Killeagh and we have been informed that the Main Cork/Waterford road through Killeagh will be open to two way traffic over this weekend and there should be no delays to anyone attending our race on Sunday. We will continue to liaise with the Engineer as we get closer to the weekend. So whether your walking, jogging, running or supporting we are looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday and show you all some East Cork hospitality.

Message from the Killeagh road race committe, progress with the road works in the village of Killeagh have been great in the last week and they will have very little effect on any race goers. Final preparations have been made and whether your running, jogging, walking or supporting we look forward to seeing you tomorrow morning registration opens at 8.30, with the walkers starting at 10 and the race at 11am.
