Notice: Donoughmore 7 mile road race - Thurs 15th June 2023

The annual Donoughmore 7 mile road race is coming up this year on Thursday 15th June 2023

You can enter online HERE

Update reminder: The Donoughmore 7 is online only this year and that registration closes 6pm Wednesday

As road races go, this one is really unique as it's the only 7 mile road race on the calendar. At first, it might seem like a bit of an odd distance but don''t let that put you off. It's really is a well organised race on country roads to the north-west of Cork City....even if it is a little bit hilly ;o)

This year is also unique in that the race celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Even with the pandemic, they managed to hold the race as a local event in 2020 and 2021. There aren't too many races in Cork with such a long history.

Directions...Donoughmore is located about 15 miles north-west of Cork City. If you are coming out the Ballincollig bypass or the Carrigrohane straight, look for directions for the R579 road to Nad / Banteer / Kanturk. Stay on this road for about 10 miles and keep a lookout for the turn off right to Donoughmore. Then follow the signs for Stuake. The village is about 2 miles off the R579 road. See map above.
