Notice : Emer Casey 5k race in Youghal - Thurs 4th Apr 2019

The annual Emer Casey 5k road race in Youghal in East Cork is coming up this year on Thursday the 4th of April 2019...

Online Entry - You can pre-register at this LINK

Usually the first evening race in Cork is in mid-April when the sun sets about 8:32pm. With the Emer Casey 5k, it will be on in the town of Youghal so the street lighting will compensate as it gets dark earlier. On the 4th of April, the sun sets around 8:15pm.

With it's location near the county boundary, the race is sure to attract runners from both East Cork and West Waterford.

The race is on a flat fast course on the streets of the historic town and passes under the iconic Youghal Clock Tower...

This race has an Athletics Ireland permit and has been measured accurately by Jones Counter.
