Notice: Douglas Credit Union Charity 5k in Tramore Valley Park - Sun 9th Oct 2022

The third Douglas Credit Union Charity 5k is coming up in Tramore Valley Park in Cork City on Sunday the 9th of October 2022 at 11am.

The entry fee is €15 + an online fee of €1.05 and all proceeds from this event go to two deserving charities, Cork Cancer Care Centre and Feileacain


You can also enter on the morning of the event.

There will be prizes for top 3 men and women along with spot prizes for those taking part.

Runners, joggers, walkers and buggies are all welcome.

This is a chip timed race through

Please note that there will be a draw for a free pair of NIKE AIR PEGASUS shoes for all those who pre-enter courtesy of John Buckley Sports.

Access by car is of course via the South Link Road. There is a pedestrian entrance from near Douglas Shopping Centre but it's a fair bit away.

The 5k course itself is basically two 2.5km loops...

There is a small hill near the recycling centre but it really doesn't amount to much. The course is a mix of a compact gravel surface and tarmac and I'd consider it a reasonably fast course.

Proceeds from this event goes to two charities...

Cork Cancer Care Centre... "Voluntary cancer support centre for all those touched by cancer, their families and friends."

Féileacáin... "Féileacáin is a not for profit organisation that provides support to anyone affected by the death of a baby during or after pregnancy."
