West Cork Islands Run Series Concludes for 2019

On Sunday last October 27th the Whiddy Island 5k fun run took place concluding the West Cork Islands run series for 2019. Some photos HERE

Report from Cork Sports Partnership... The event was initially planned to coincide with the Sport Ireland European Week of Sport and the #BeActive Nights campaign but was cancelled due to poor weather conditions back in September!

Huge thanks due to Bantry basketball club and Tim O Leary of the Whiddy Island Ferry for organsing and ensuring a great event was had by all!

Events have now taken place across 5 Islands during 2019 with nearly 500 people taking part:

Bere Island Midsummer Run- 161
Cape Clear 5k- 101
The Do Run Run- Sherkin Island- 139
Heir Island 5k- 20
Whiddy Island 5k- 77

On behalf of Cork Sports Partnership, Sport Ireland and the West Cork Islands Sports hub we would like to thank all the Island communities, development workers, volunteers and local agencies for ensuring a successful series for 2019.

Looking forward to 2020 already
