1st time doing Youghal 5k - one of the best 5k courses I have ever done. Great atmosphere and excellent organisation. Really is a nice experience to run through a town centre like this - 1 of the best 5k in Cork IMO. Thanks to Youghal AC and all the volunteers

Well done to Youghal AC on a very well run race. No exorbitant race entry fee, loads of car parking around the town, a really fast 5k course with zero pinch points and a very nice selection of sambos and treats at the race HQ. Bananas and water at the finish line were very welcome, too. 10 out of 10 to Youghal AC ✔️.

I'd like to echo all the above comments. Its fantastic to be able to run a race through the streets of a town, and especially an old historic town like Youghal. The sun shone, great course, and the atmosphere at the finish line was superb on Thursday evening,
Well done Youghal AC...its the one race on the calender I will always try to get to.

Would have been interested in doing this race but unfortunately did not know about it which is mainly my fault, pity it wasn't listed on the running website calendar.

It was definitely on the race calendar, it's easy to miss as there are so many events listed now.
