Notice...Rebel Run 10k & 5k in Cork City - Sun 22nd Oct 2017

This 10 km & 5km road race is coming up in Bishopstown on Sunday, the 22nd of October 2017 at 9:30am.

This is going to be of interest to a lot of people for a number of reasons.....
1) There aren't that many 10k races really on the calendar. Loads of 5k and 5 mile races but fast 10k courses are a bit thin on the ground.
2) In Bishopstown in Cork City so it is central to a lot of people.
3) Dry-fit top included in the early entry fee for both the 5k and 10k.

Early Bird entry fee:
Cork Rebel Run 10K - €15 (includes souviner t-shirt, goody bag, chip timing, bib number)

From Cork Sports Partnership...Cork Sports Partnership recently launched the 2017 Rebel Run at the CIT Athletics Track with new sponsors Cork City Council and Cork County Council. The Cork Rebel Run will take place on Sunday October 22nd 2017 from CIT in Bishopstown.

Speaking of the launch, Lord Mayor Cllr Tony Fitzgerald said he “is delighted that Cork City Council is supporting the Rebel Run and encouraging increased levels of physical activity, which may even lead to participating in the Cork City Marathon next June.” Similarly “Deputy Chief Executive of Cork County Council, Declan Daly, mentioned how happy the Council is to again be a part of The Cork Rebel Run. “The positive impact physical activity of any kind has on mental health and wellbeing at all ages is hugely significant and it is an area that Cork County Council is concentrating on more and more".

The 2017 event promises to be a great experience, with the course being accurately measured by Jones counter, chip timing for all runners, a scenic rolling course & goody bags including your 2017 Cork Rebel Run T-shirt. The 10K event also has a huge array of prizes up for grabs on the day, and will prove attractive to runners of all levels and abilities. Participant spot prizes will also be given to the 5K participants. The organising partners of Cork Sports Partnership, Leisureworld and CIT with the assistance of the An Garda Síochána and Athletics Ireland hope that friends & family will come along on the day, cheering from the grandstand to support the runners in the final straight.
