Well done to all our members out there who are observing the guidelines of the HSE and Athletics Ireland. It is great to be able to meet up again in groups of four observing the social distancing and have a run and a chat. Remember anyone needing specific training plans etc just give Donie a call.
Please continue to observe the advice given and remember the public are watching us  also ignore what other groups/clubs are doing ( I have seen several on the roads and even on FB ignoring the rules as I am sure you all have) we can get through this and hopefully all race together again soon.

Serious Training Issues Arising During COVID-19

Cork Athletics County Board wishes to express its appreciation and thanks all clubs and individuals - the overwhelming majority - for their co-operation, patience and adherence to HSE and Athletics Ireland guidelines and advice.
We are all hoping that normal club activity and competition can resume as soon as possible. However, the actions of a minority may delay these resumptions.
Since the start of the 'lockdown', the County Board has been aware that a small minority of members have been flouting HSE and AAI guidelines and advice, and undermining the lockdown strategy.

Midleton AC Virtual 5 k Series!

Week 4 – Final week in this year’s event!

Well done to all that participated again in our little 5k series. This week saw 37 athletes take up the challenge and in spite of  the scorching heat, a magnificent 17 min and 22 seconds saw John Hennessy lead the mens team home with Eileen Leahy being quickest lady!

There were lots of impressive results once again all you need to know can be seen on the results and improvement columns below!  

This weeks special mention goes to Donie and Kathleen O’Connell! When a man over of over 70 years and his much younger wife are consistently running such impressive times it deserves to be highlighted and celebrated! Sometimes we don’t need to look very far for inspiration!  Well done to you both.


Finally, thank you all once again for participating! Another event is currently being planned for Wednesday 10th or 17th June and this will probably be a slightly longer 4 mile event….so keep training!

Best wishes.
Paul Geary, Derek Ahern, Declan Dorgan and Fergal O’Meara.


Special thanks to Danny, Máire and Marie that help with updating the blog, social media, emails etc. too.
