VOLUNTEERS WANTED- if you would like to volunteer at this years event please contact us- to get involved!

See everyone on Sunday October 20th!

This is going to be of interest to a lot of people for a number of reasons.....
1) There aren't that many 10k races really on the calendar. Loads of 5k and 5 mile races but fast 10k courses are a bit thin on the ground.
2) It's in Bishopstown in Cork City so it is central to a lot of people.
3) Dry-fit top included in the early entry fee for both the 5k and 10k.
