From the organisers....Cork City FC, in association with Marymount, are delighted to announce our second annual 5K to take place at 10:30AM, Sunday 27th August, 2017, starting and finishing at the Bishopstown Training Ground at Curraheen.

Entry is €10 for adults, €5 for U-16s and €25 for a family entry (two adults and two U16).

The 5K is for both serious and casual runners, wheelchair rollers, and walkers, of any age. Being active by running, jogging, or walking is to be encouraged; evidence shows that undertaking physical activity can help to prevent disease, maintain a healthy weight, and promote mental health and well-being.

With €100 first prize for 1st male, and another €100 for 1st female, there are sure to be more than a few runners that will want the honour of claiming the cash along with the prestige of winning our second 5K.

Prizes: There is €50 for 2nd place, and €25 for 3rd place, for male and female, to be competed for also. Our 1st place under 16 male, and 1st place under 16 female, will both receive a €25 voucher each. Over 20 other spot prizes will be awarded at the event.

Refreshments will be available at the training ground upon completion.
