2019 Inch Festival 5k cancelled

Someone was asking me about the Inch Festival 5k race in Mount Uniacke near Killeagh in East Cork and whether it was on this year. I checked with the organisers who confirmed that it wasn't.

As can be seen from the chart above, it peaked in 2016 but went into decline over the next two years.

There does seem to be a define contraction in the number of races now on the calendar. So far in 2019, we have seen the Blackwater 10 mile, Clonakilty 10 mile, Shannonvale 10k and Carrigtwohill 5k races go and there are probably a few more that don't spring to mind.

On the Cork BHAA front, the Merck and CPO races were cancelled.

Will there be more in 2020?
