Notice : Conna 5km road race - Fri 3rd Aug 2018

Organised by St.Catherine's Athletic Club, this 5 km road race is coming up in the village of Conna on Friday, the 3rd of August 2018.

The race HQ is the local community centre which is on the main road through the village. This is one of the few 5 km races in this part of NE Cork and should be of interest to a lot of runners. One thing to note is the number of prizes on offer with the top 6 men and women getting something as opposed to the more usual three.

There will also be chip timing.

The club has its own website as well...
