From Liam Murphy – Race Director...“ Mount Hillary AC with our main sponsor , Tarrant’s Skoda Banteer, are delighted to launch the 'Fast and Flat' Banteer 5 Mile Road Race which will take place on Sunday 10th March at 10am. 

The total elevation is only 24m over the 5 miles so we expect some fast times . We are looking forward to welcoming you to a quality race on a fast and flat scenic 5 mile route and I’m sure you will enjoy the refreshments afterwards where there will be lots of home baking delights. 

We have cash prizes for Senior, Juvenile (15-17), O40 , O50 , O60 & Wheelchair . 
We have buffs/snoods for the first 200 people to enter online so be sure to enter early to secure yours .

Banteer has a proud history in Athletics with it being the birthplace of two-time Olympic Gold Medallist Dr. Pat O’Callaghan. We would like to continue this rich tradition by providing a quality road race."

Banteer is located about 20kms to the west of the town of Mallow in N Cork. It's just 1km south of the N72 Killarney to Mallow road.

The distance from Cork City is about 54 minutes and it's probably quicker to go via the main N20 road to Mallow and then take the N72 west. The alternative R579 route via Cloghroe and up over the hills to Nad might be shorter but it has a lot of twists and turns.

Banteer is also centrally located for any runners in Kerry or S Limerick.
