Results of the Cloyne 5-mile road race - Thurs 2nd June 2022

Just 123 runners turned out for this 5-mile road race in Cloyne on Thursday 2nd June 2022. By comparison, the Cloyne 5k back in the Summer of 2019 had 318 finishers.

It probably didn't help that the date chosen for the race was the Thursday before the Cork City marathon.

I can't help thinking that a few years ago, a race like this would have been timed manually by the Ballycotton Running Promotions crew for nothing. The expense of chip timing and all that entails for just 123 runners seems a bit crazy.

Very poorly advertised , I live in Cloyne and didn't know it was on.

Great event. Granted the numbers were small but there was a wonderful atmosphere and the downpour just after the start made things interesting.
If it's on next year then count me in.

I'd have to agree it was a very poorly advertised race. Also having it so close to the Cork City marathon would put alot of people off. A different time of year and a bit of advertising and I'm sure they would get big numbers.
