Notice...Boherbue to Kiskeam 4 mile road race in NW Cork - Mon 2nd Apr 2018

Looking ahead to some more races coming up in the near future, this one might be of interest to anyone west or north of Cork City, in Kerry or south and west Limerick. The Boherbue to Kiskeam 4 mile road race in NW Cork is coming up on Easter Monday, the 2nd of April 2018.

This 4 mile road race starts in Boherbue and finishes in the village of Kiskeam. As you can see from the map below, it's a central location for a lot of people in N.Cork, W.Limerick & E.Kerry...

The race is being organised by Gneeveguilla AC, one of the largest athletic clubs in Kerry. The entry fee is €20 on the day and there is a huge array of prizes on offer. These are usually in the form of vouchers for a local co-op and are pretty generous.

There will be the usual refreshments of tea. coffee. sandwiches, etc afterwards as well.

I've ran this event on and off over the last 15 years or so.
I must say they really do give out alot of top quality prizes.

It's hard to understand how munster athletics, could feel that it's ok to have the munster road championship on the same day!!!.....when they know or they should know that this race is on Easter Monday every year for over 20 years.
They could easly have set the date for the following weekend.
Munster athletics is showing a total disregarde for club events.
One thing is for sure very few id any Kerry athletes will compete at the munster roads.

I've also run this race a few times but it's been a few years since I've done it. It's unique for sure with a nice atmosphere. 20 Euro is steep for a 4 mile race in my view. There's enough commercial ventures out there charging over the odds for 5 and 10 ks

I ran this race and yes plenty tea and sandwiches but not worth 20 Euro entry fee..!
