Notice...Eyeries 5 mile road race, West Cork - Sat 10th Nov 2018

This is the 5th year of the Eyeries 5 mile road race and follows on the success of the previous four years. The Beara Peninsula in West Cork is one of the most scenic parts of the country and an ideal backdrop for this road race in November. It might well suit any clubs or small groups who are looking for a day or weekend away.

On a nice sunny day, it's an absolutely stunning spot. The town of Castletownbere is only 4.5 miles away so there is plenty of accommodation on offer.

From the organisers.....EYERIES 5 MILE ROAD RACE...A scenic course with some challenging hills starting and ending in the village - this year's race Saturday 10th November 2.30pm

The Eyeries 5 Mile Road Race takes place every November, two weeks after the Dublin Marathon. It is organised by Beara A.C. - an enthusiastic group of runners who delight in putting on a great show for competitors who come from near and far to participate. The challenging course begins and ends in the village and is a great test to even the toughest of runners. This year will be the 5th Eyeries 5 Mile Road Race.
