Cork City Marathon, Half Marathon & Relay 2017 Sunday June 4th 2017.
The main event this weekend has to be the Cork City Marathon, Half Marathon & Relay. As a club we are strongly represented across all three events, which is fantastic to see! We wish the very best of luck to Eagle AC members running in Sunday, and i’m sure there are plenty more assisting with stewarding & behind the scenes too. There is always such a great atmosphere around the city on marathon day, and no doubt with this year’s event being held on a Sunday event this will be even better. Be sure a give your fellow club runners a cheer or shout of encouragement should you see them & let’s keep the spirits high. We are lucky to be out there, lucky to be running & lucky to be a part of such a great event.
Enjoy the day.

John Buckley 5k BHAA
A huge crowd of 914 ran the John Buckley 5k last night at the Marina. There was a big Eagle turnout with a number of great PB’s recorded! As it was a BHAA race no clubs were listed so it’s not possible to list all member’s results. However a large number of Eagle names were spotted in the category prizes and these are listed below. Well done to all who ran.
