Cloyne 4Km

Lots of members out in Cloyne Sunday morning where Paul Spiteri finished once again in 3rd male and Eileen Leahy in 2nd Female

Two fantastic local races this weekend and do not forget you can pre enter Carrigaline in case you are in a hurry and want to do the two of them.


Donie O'Connell a man with huge experience of this race is organising his annual pre Ballycotton 10 practice run next Saturday 25th Feb. @ 9am. This is geared to those wanting to do between 8.30 --- 9.30 pm pace. All are welcome .

County Roads Championships

The next championship event on the calendar is the Cork Athletics County Road Championships which will be held on Friday, March 17 at 10.00 am in Castlelyons.
This is a 4 mile road race with a separate race for men and women, with each race incorporating novice and masters categories.  This means that everyone in the club is eligible to compete, unless there is anyone under 35 who has already been placed in the top three in a previous road county championships.
Castlelyons is a very short journey and the race is short and early so please try to support your club by competing.  A small group from Midleton AC competed last year and won several medals.  Let's see if we can improve on that this year.
Entries have to be made in advance.  So please let me know if you would like to be entered.

Kind regards,

Please Do Not Forget
