C2 5k 
It's That Time Of Year Again

A new Couch to 5km group will be starting in September due to many requests and enquiries we have been receiving. So give yourself an early "Christmas Present" and come along.
Just imagine what shape you will be by Christmas and how good you will feel having run your first 5Km.

This is designed for total beginners or those just starting to learn to run. You will be helped by very experienced coaches who have trained thousands of people around Midleton and East Cork to run.

Midleton AC is an Athletics Ireland affiliated club and therefore you will be fully insured whilst training with the club. (You don’t drive without insurance so why run without insurance. )

We also cater for athletes of all levels from five minute milers to ten/ twelve minute milers and beyond. You will be made feel welcome whatever level you are at and can be sure to find fellow runners at your level and make lots of new friends. You will get advice from those who have experience of all levels of running from fun running to national and international levels.
We are not in this for the money only for the love of running and of athletics.

New members are welcome at any time and we guarantee we are the best value around at 50 Euro for six months coaching from qualified male and female coaches.
If interested please call 0872403940 or email  as can be seen below there is a fantastic social side to the club also plus national and international trips away etc.

Club Annual BBQ In Sage

A great night out was had at our Annual BBQ held in Sage. A big thanks you to Louise and Esther who organised it.

East Cork Harbour Marathon. Half Marathon and 10Km

On a beautiful morning for running these events took place over the beautiful East Cork Harbour. This was one of the best organised events that I have come across. The stewarding and support were superb. There were several stewards and Garda at every turn of the road and they were out there for the long haul of six hours plus and all had smiles on their faces and words of encouragement for every runner. It was an absolute credit to the local community.
We had lots of runners there in the half and 10Km. In the half Helen Gilroy finished 4th overall and 1st O/50 whilst Sheila Buckley came 5th. overall. In the 10km Marian Aherne was 4th Lady overall.
An extra special well done to our pacers Louise Barry, Maire Walsh and Derek Aherne who paced the four hour group.
Well done to all who ran and please do let me know re any PBs etc. email

Our two super pacers Louise and Maire who paced the four hour group for the marathon. Plus Bernie No 1 supporter.
