Notice...Lee Fields 4 mile road race - Sun 19th Mar 2017

The Lee Fields 4 mile road race is coming up in Cork City on Sunday the 19th of March 2017. This was held before in October 2015 so it has now changed to a Spring date.

The 4 mile route is the same as before...County Hall...Carrigrohane Straight...Inchigaggin Lane...Model Farm Rd...Dennehy's Cross...Victoria Cross. You can see a preview of the course HERE

You can pre-enter online HERE for €10.70 and there is a free technical top for the first 200 entrants. You can also enter on the morning of the race for €15 but obviously the tech tops might be gone at that stage.

As you can see in the flyer above, the race HQ is at the Kingsley Hotel.

The race is a partnership between HSE Drug & Alcohol Services, Cork Local and Southern Regional Drug & Alcohol Task Forces. We hope to encourage people to take part in Sunday morning activities. The Cork Local & Southern Regional Drug & Alcohol Task Force has responsibility for developing a strategic, locally based response to substance misuse in Cork City, Co. Cork and Kerry. Today, the Cork Local & Southern Regional Drug & Alcohol Task Force funds 47 projects. These projects are spread across local communities and voluntary agencies throughout the region to support individuals affected by substance misuse. All Drug Task Forces now have the responsibility of Alcohol added to their brief. We in the Task Force are highlighting this addition of alcohol by creating an event to support the “Hello Sunday Morning” initiative.

“Hello Sunday Morning” encourages individuals to look at changing the pattern of their drinking by taking a break from alcohol & incentivizing that break with goals e.g taking up running/exercise – further details

Details, photos  and rationale of event can be found on our website -

We are hoping you will support the upcoming not for profit event. Look forward to seeing you on the day.
