Notice: Donoughmore 7 mile road race - Thurs 20th June 2024

The annual Donoughmore 7 mile road race is coming up this year on Thursday 20th June 2024

You can enter online HERE

Update: The closing date for entries has now been extended until 6pm Thursday 20th June.

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 race got a boost in numbers last year for its 40th anniversary and should popular again this year. 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 / 16kms and keep a lookout for the turn off right to Donoughmore. Then follow the signs for Stuake. The village is about 2 miles / 3kms off the R579 road. See map above.

Entries......Entries are online HERE

Is there a list of previous winners of this race from early 90's to around 2000?

A great honest race to test oneself over an unusual distance. Always very well organised.
