Notice : Conna 5k road race - Fri 2nd Aug 2019

Organised by St.Catherine's Athletic Club, this 5 km road race is coming up in the village of Conna on Friday, the 2nd of August 2019.

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 5 men and women getting something as opposed to the more usual three.

The entry fee is €10.

There will also be chip timing.
