Notice...Carrigaline 5 mile road race - Sun 18th February 2018

The big race next weekend is the 5 mile road race organised by Eagle AC in Carrigaline on Sunday, the 18th of February 2018 at 11am.

Please note that there is a change of route this year. The road north from Coolmore Cross is closed due to ongoing works.

The new course is much the same as the old one except that the start and finish point will have to be moved to account for the diversion around the road works. The start is pretty much the same distance from the race HQ while the finish line will be 0.8 of a mile away.

The new course has been accurately measured by Kevin Cummins of the Cork BHAA so it's an accurate 5 miles.


While you can enter on the day of the race, you can also pre-enter from via the link below.

The pre-entry link is

All those who pre-enter will be put into a draw for a €30 One4all voucher.

The race is organised by Eagle AC, has an Athletics Ireland permit and has been accurately measured by Jones Counter. More info on the Eagle AC race page.

Location...The town of Carrigaline is only five miles south of the South Ring Road so it is within easy reach of Cork City. Race HQ is at the local community sports hall where runners can enter on the day. For those who pre-enter in advance, they can skip the queues there and pick up their numbers at the pre-entry desk.

The race is co-sponsored by The Edge Sports Shop
