Google+ Running in Cork, Ireland: IMRA-M


Irish Mountain Running Association... Traditionally, the Munster branch of IMRA have organised races which go up and down mountains and hill but in recent years, they have organised various trail races in woods to broaden the appeal of their events.

For insurance reasons, you must be a registered IMRA member to take part in events. 

You can purchase annual IMRA membership online for €10 to take part in any of the IMRA events. Once this annual €10 fee is paid, many of the races cost less than €10.
