Notice: Cork BHAA Stryker 4 mile race in Carrigtwohill - Wed 21st Aug 2024

This 4 mile race in Carrigtwohill in East Cork is coming up on Wednesday the 21st of August at 7:30pm. As with all Cork BHAA events, the entry fee is €5 for registered runners and €10 for non-registered.

Located just a few minutes drive from the Jack Lynch tunnel, this one is very close to Cork City and is easy to get to.

The race HQ is the local community centre and the race route takes in a loop to the north of Carrigtwohill. Note that the start line is a few hundred metres away so allow plenty of time to get there.

This year, there is a change to the course in the first mile. In previous years, the race went up the busy main road and then took a sharp left onto Station Road.

This year, the race will take a left at the local Aldi and then make use of the new roads that pass by the new apartment block and schools. This should be much quieter and the wide roads will allow the field to thin out nicely in the first mile.

As BHAA races go, this one is noted for having some pretty good prizes and of course, there are loads on offer with the various categories and teams.

In addition to the race, the organisers are holding a raffle to raise extra fund for the CUH charity.

From the organisers... "A raffle for fantastic prizes will be held with proceeds going to CUH Children’s unit. The raffle prizes include a €500 hotel voucher, signed sports jerseys and much more!

Buying tickets couldn't be easier - go to  Tickets cost €5 each"
