This is the fifth year of this 5km race in race and it should prove to be a popular one again. The St.Luke's Home 5km run is on in Mahon on Thursday the 5th of September 2019 and it starts at 7pm.

Pre-entry link...

Amongst the many spot prizes for the pre-registered runners will be 2 holidays sponsored by RCI (7 nights luxury accommodation abroad) which will be drawn at random from all pre-registered runners.

You must pre-enter before midnight on Wed the 4th of Sept. There are two draws so you have tow chances of winning!

The organisers ask that all participants arrive early and allow plenty of time to enter and to get to the start line which is a few hundred metres away. Runners can also avail of the off road parking in the Cork Camogie grounds which is just across the road from St.Luke's.

Here are some of the reasons why it should get a good turnout......
1) It is at a time of year when most of the mid-week evening races have stopped.
2) It is in Cork City with a huge number of runners within its catchment area.
3) Fast accurate 5km course.
4) 80% of it is on a quiet public walkway.
5) Finishers get a 20% discount voucher for John Buckley Sports which could easily result in savings in excess of the entry fee (valid until the end of Sept 2019).
6) All proceeds go to St.Lukes Home which is a registered charity.

....and a draw for a 7 day holiday for pre-reg runners!

BodyMechanics, a private Gym based in Douglas, specialising in Personal Training and Nutrition,  are supporting the race this year.
