Notice...St.Luke's Home 5k road race, Mahon - Thurs 7th Sept 2017

This is the third year of this 5km race in race and it should prove to be a popular one again. The St.Luke's Home 5km run is on in Mahon on Thursday the 7th of September and it starts at 7pm.

Here are some of the reasons why it should get a good turnout......
1) It is at a time of year when most of the mid-week evening races have stopped.
2) It is in Cork City with a huge number of runners within its catchment area.
3) Fast accurate 5km course.
4) 80% of it is on a quiet public walkway.
5) Finishers get a 20% discount voucher for John Buckley Sports which could easily result in savings in excess of the entry fee (valid until the end of Sept 2017).
6) All proceeds go to St.Lukes Home which is a registered charity.
