Notice...Cork BHAA Pfizers 6 mile road race - Wed 10th May 2017

The next race on the Cork BHAA calendar is the Pfizers 6 mile road race near Ringaskiddy on Wednesday the 10th of May 2017.

Given its proximity to Cork City and Carrigaline, it should attract a good bit of interest.

Directions.......It's very easy to find. From the South Ring Road in Cork City, follow all of the signs for Ringakiddy. As you get closer, you come to the small village of Shanbally.

Follow the signs for Rinaskiddy...straight through the roundabout...and 500m later, take a left...signposted 'Raffeen Creek Sports Club'. Follow the stewards directions on the night on where to park which will probably be next to the playing fields.

Entries, post race refreshments and prize giving will be at the Pfizers Clubhouse.

Entries......As with all Cork BHAA events, the race entry will be €5 for registered runners and €10 for non-registered. It's probably best to be there from say 7:00pm to 7:20pm so that you can enter in plenty of time.

This year the course reverts back to its traditional route.

From the organisers...

· 35th anniversary of long running BHAA race
·After the road works last year, we are returning to our traditional 6 mile route in 2017
· A challenging course, with plenty of climbs and descents
· Legendary post-race refreshments afterwards

Overall.......A longstanding race which is popular with a lot of runners. Parts of the course are challenging yet you should still post a reasonable time. The post race refreshments put on by the staff of Pfizers are second to none and there's a pretty good chance you will eat more calories than you burn off by running the race! ;o). Recommended.
