Every year in the second half of February, Eagle AC organises the annual Tommy Ryan Memorial 5 mile road race in Carrigaline. This is a popular race with runners in the Cork area and is often used as a fitness test coming half way through the Spring season.
The results of the 2018 Carrigaline 5 mile road race can be found here… https://eagleac.net/race-carrigaline-5-mile/2018-results/
While you can of course enter on the morning of the race, there is also the option of pre-entering online which helps you avoid any queues on the day. Just pop into the hall and collect your number at the pre-entry desk. Anyone who pre-enters will also be put into a draw for a €30 One4All voucher.
Please note that there is a change to the 5 mile course this year due to ongoing road works. The net result is that the finish line is further away than usual from the race HQ. i.e. 0.8 miles so it’s still not too bad. Probably the ideal distance for a warm down.
The Course…A full preview of the old course with photos is available at http://munsterraceroutes.blogspot.ie/2013/01/cork001.html
Please note that the new course is pretty much the same except for the different start / finish points and the detour.
