With less than three weesk to go to the Cork Half Marathon  in Blarney, you can get more information by logging onto the St Finbarr's AC website. Whilst entries will be taken on the day, it makes it easier for everybody to enter in advance if you intending participating.  The Charleville Half Marathon and the Cork to Cobh Race are other likely options for our Martahon crew who are all putting in a huge effort in advance of Dublin in late October.
