Notice : Ardfield 10k race nr Clonakilty - Fri 26th July 2019

The village of Ardfield is located just to the south of Clonakilty in West Cork and is a lovely part of the county. The roads in general are relatively quiet and there are extensive views out over the West Cork countryside and coastline.

Next Friday the 26th of July 2019, there is a 10 km road race in the village.



The race is suitable for runners and walkers and it will be chip timed.

The village of Ardfield is just 6 kms to the south of Clonakilty...

Registration for the race is at Ardfield GAA hall and it opens at 5:30pm. The 10k costs €15 with proceeds going towards the local playground.

The races start at 7:30pm.

10k......A preview with maps, directions and photos can be seen HERE


From the race organisers...Following on from the success of last year’s event, the Ardfield Rathbarry Playground Group are getting ready for this years Ardfield Road Run on July 26th 2019.  The 10k run is on quiet scenic country roads and all levels of fitness are welcome – as the logo goes ‘Walk It, Run It, Race It’. The course starts and finishes in Ardfield village and takes in spectacular views from Inchydoney to the Galley Head adding greatly to the occasion.

The entry fee is €15 for the 10K.  Post race refreshments will be served in the local GAA complex. Further details can be found on the Ardfield Rathbarry Playground Group Facebook page. A fun and challenging afternoon is guaranteed by the organisers - whatever the weather!

Notice : Cloyne 5km road race - Thurs 18th July 2019

The annual Cloyne 5km road race takes place in East Cork on Thursday, the 18th of July 2019 at 8pm.


As races go, this is a reasonably flat and fast course. There are no real hills as such, just a few short sections where the road rises by a few metres at most. Outside of the Centre Park Road course in Cork City, it doesn't get much flatter. If you want to try for a fast 5k time, then this is the one to do.

If you are coming from the Cork city, then Cloyne is just a 22-25 minute drive from the Jack Lynch tunnel. Considering the number of runners within say a 30 minute drive of it, the race is likely to attract a large crowd.


From the organisers...The race will be chip timed, and the route (start/finish) and HQ all remain the same as last year. Registrations on the day of the race will open in the School from 3.00pm for anyone that wishes to enter earlier in the day.

Preview...A full preview of the course with maps, directions, photos and description can be seen HERE

There will be no Clonakilty 10 mile in 2019


The Clonakilty 10 mile was a regular feature on the calendar with the race taking place every August. There will be no event in 2019 however.

The chart above shows the numbers for the last few years. It peaked in 2016 but the numbers have dropped back since then.

The Shannonvale 10k near Clonakilty was cancelled this year as well so the number of races in the West Cork region seems to be on the wane.

Update on the Cork BHAA Gas Networks Ireland results

The BHAA are sorting out some issues with times before they issue the full results. See their statement below...

We're still trying to sort through the issue we had last night for the Gas Networks Ireland 5k. Please bear with us and we will have results as soon as possible.

We had an issue with duplicate bibs being issued for a certain amount of runners. This affects the results for all runners so we can't post definitive results. We apologise for the delay as we always get results out on the same day.

If you had a bib between 26 and 100 can you PM us here or send an email with your bib and approximate time to register AT corkbhaa DOT com ?

We hope you enjoyed the race in spite of this and we will get back to our expected high standards for the rest of the races in 2019.

Notice: Cork BHAA Gas Networks Ireland 5k road race - Wed 10th July 2019

The annual Cork BHAA Gas Networks Ireland 5k road race is coming up on Wednesday the 10th of July 2019 at 8pm in Cork City.


The Cork Boat Club which is located in Blackrock village will be the race HQ. The race starts near Pairc Uí Chaoimh and takes in the Centre Park Road, Monghan Road and the Marina. As courses go, there are no hills and it's flat and fast.


The one issue however is parking. It is very limited near the Cork Boat Club but there is plenty at the other end of Marina near Pairc Uí Chaoimh.


Here is some information from the organisers..... The Gas Networks Ireland race takes place at a Marina 5k route this year. Registration is from 6.30pm at Cork Boat Club in Blackrock village with the race starting at 8pm up near Lee Rowing Club. Registration will close at 7.45pm to allow runners get to the start which is approximately 1 mile from Cork Boat Club.


Free travel mugs for the first 500 to register on the night
Parking...The following areas are where you are likely to find parking but these will fill up early so it would be worth getting to registration as early as possible.

a) Car parks on far side of Blackrock Castle. These will fill up with early morning walkers if we have a fine morning
b) Parking near Shandon Boat Club where traditionally a lot of people would have parked for Marina 5k races. If you’ve car-pooled, the driver can drop off others who can register for them at Cork Boat Club and meet them at the start.
c) City side of Blackrock church. Meadow Grove Estate which is between Blackrock Village and Skehard Rd.


As always, the entry fee is €5 for registered runners and €10 for non-registered. I suggest you park your car and jog to the race HQ with the exact entry fee. From there, go to the start line.


A free travel mug will also be given out to the first 500 runners to register...

London Marathon Runners called 'Fat' & 'Slow' given a free entry for next year


The 2019 London Marathon held last April is one of the largest marathons in the world and this year, it had a record field of 42,549 finishers.


It wasn't without controversy though as some of the contractors had started to clean up while the marathon was still on. Slower runners said that water stations had been packed away by the time they had reached them.

Participants completing the course in 7h 30m complained that the contractors and marshals had told them to 'hurry up' and used comments such as "if you weren't so fat, you could run," and "this is a race, not a walk".

London Marathon has apologised for this and has said they will implement the following changes...
  • Start the clean-up operation later to ensure it will not affect those running at that pace
    Look at the timings of when water was handed out
    Have one of its most senior staff at the back of the race to monitor the event
    Tell contractors of the procedures in place for those running at the slower pace
That have also offered hundreds of slower runners a free entry into next years event.

Results of the Glen River 5k parkrun - Sat 29th June 2019

 The chart above shows the number of finishers at the 5k parkrun in the Glen since it started in November of 2018.

A 5k parkrun in the centre of the north side of Cork City should really be getting 100 participants per week considering the number of people living relatively close to it. Instead, it has declined to around the 60 mark.

If you live in Glanmire, Mayfield, Ballyvolane or nearby, you might consider supporting it either by running it or by volunteering.

Remember that most people do not have a local 5k parkrun every Saturday morning. If it's on your doorstep then try and support it.
