Hundreds expected for 5k race

Wednesday, 12th July, 2017 5:37pm

Grab your runners and start training, because you only have one week to get into shape for the annual Carrigtwohill 5km road race!

The race will be held on Wednesday 19 July at Barryscourt Castle, just south of Carrigtwohill in East Cork.

Starting at 8pm, runners head south through quiet country roads before looping back to the castle. Prizes will be awarded for different categories.

There will also be a walk at 6.30pm for those who would like to participate but aren't keen on the idea of running 5km.

Refreshments and goodie bags will be served in the castle grounds following the race.

Registration is on Tuesday 18 July from 7-9pm and on the day of the race at 1-7.30pm.

Entry fees are €10 for the 5km race and €5 for the walk. All proceeds raised go towards Carrigtwohill Community Care, Meal on Wheels and Caring and Sharing Association (CASA).

The road race was first held in 2010 and is now one of the most popular 5k races in East Cork. A massive 512 runners turned out for the 2016 race, with a large turnout also expected this year.
