FMC 4 Mile Little Island

Around five hundred and twenty runners took part in this race on Sunday morning. The start was delayed due to ice on the course and the organisers wanting it to be safe reverted back to the original 4 mile route instead of the planned 6km. This was the 33rd running of this race FMC being one of the first BHAA races in Cork.
We had a great crew out both running and supporting. A big thanks to all the supporters (too many to name) who came out some just doing their long runs and other there to support. Every cheer counts.
All our runners seemed to have good runs despite many being in the middle of hard training Our first man home was Brian Harty and our first lady was Anna Doris who finished 2nd Lady overall which was a great debut for Edmond's new BHAA team Midleton Town Council. Other prize winners from the club were Marie Gillman 1st O/50. Mary O'Keeffe 3rd O/45 and Joan McCarthy 3rd O/55. Our men also were in the prizes with John Cashman 3rd O/50 and John O'Halloran 3rd O/60. Danny

RACE FMC 6Km Little Island Sunday

NOTE Change of Course.

The next race on the Cork BHAA calendar is the FMC 6k race on Sunday January 18 at 11am. This is usually a 4 mile race but in the interest of safety we have adjusted the route of the race. The start and finish will be in approximately the same locations but the race will now go left into Eastgate Business Park, do a loop and come back out to the main road.
This is always a busy race so please come early to registration which opens at 9.30am at the Little Island Sports Hall. The start is still roughly a mile from registration.
