The results from the Janssen 6k race this morning are now online in Excel / PDF. Well done to the 342 finishers who came out in spite of the early rain. Thankfully, the weather held off until after the race was complete.
Kieran Minihane has a large set of photos from the race on Flickr and we’ve put Mick Dooley’s photos on our Facebook page.
Next race is the Gas Networks Ireland 5k on February 28th. See you there!

Cork BHAA FMC 6k – Kieran Minihane
The second race of 2016 on the Cork BHAA calendar is the FMC 6k race in Little Island on Sunday 17th at 11am. This has long been a 4 mile route in the past but in recent years we’ve changed the route to take in the business park.
Race registration takes place at the Little Island Sports Hall from 9.30am. It’s always worth coming to this one early as it’s usually a popular race. Don’t forget to get your annual BHAA registrations in as early as possible. Race entry still only costs €5 for registered runners and €8 for non-registered runners.
Final reminder that the AGM is on tomorrow (Thurs) at 8pm.
The results of the ESB cross-country 5k from this morning are now available in Excel / PDF. A total of 127 finished the race today which is down on previous years but a cold and dry morning meant weather conditions were ideal for cross country.
Kieran Minihane’s photos are on Flickr with Doug Minihane posting his set of photos on Facebook. We also have Mick Dooley’s photos on our Facebook page.
Don’t forget the AGM is on this Thursday and the next race is next Sunday, the FMC 6k in Little Island. Get your registrations in during the week to be registered in time.
Cork BHAA Cross Country Jan 10 2016 – Kieran Minihane
The first race of the 2016 takes place tomorrow in Blackrock with the ESB Cross Country 5k starting at 11am. This is the only cross country race in the BHAA calendar and takes place in the fields near Beaumont School. Registration is from 9.30am at Cork Con. Everybody registered with us in 2015 is registered for this first race. So come along and try out cross country if you haven’t done so before.
Registration for 2016 is open on our Register page. For those of you unfamiliar with it, please read through the instructions as we prefer getting registrations in bulk from team secretaries if you have one. Whether you’re using the Excel file for larger groups or the online method, you need to print off your registration and send this with the cheque to Kevin Cummins at the address provided in advance of the race. The Excel file also needs to be emailed into us in advance.
Finally, the BHAA AGM takes place on Thursday 14th at 8pm in Montenotte Hotel. We encourage all race organisers and interested parties to attend and have your say about the BHAA for the year.
The results of the Turkey Trot from this morning in aid of Cork Simon are now online in Excel / PDF. Well done to all who took part and who gave so generously. In total, €4,300 was handed over to Cork Simon.
To win this race, you must finish try to match your estimated time for 4 miles. Again this year, we had a number of runners who came in bang on their time. Very impressive when watches are not used in this race. Well done to the following:
Photos available from Kieran Minihane and Doug Minihane on Flickr. Thanks for all the photos again this year.
The annual Turkey Trot down the Marina in aid of Cork Simon is almost upon us again. This is a race with a difference which takes place on Sunday December 13 at 11am. You have to submit your expected time for 4 miles when you register and the closest to their estimate is the winner. No watches allowed and no timer at the finishing line so you can’t walk up to the line just in time! As it’s in aid of a worthy charity who do great work, entries are €10 with all proceeds going to Simon. Check out CorkSimon.ie for details of their work.
Registration takes place from 9.30am at the Lee Rowing Club. Have your estimated time for 4 miles ready when you register. All manners of Christmas costumes are welcome and there’s usually a sing-song at the start to get you into Christmas spirit!
We’re going all out this year, Tony even dressed up for the photoshoot for the Evening Echo recently!
The Cork BHAA AGM for this year will take place on Thursday January 14 next. This is a departure from the usual November date to simplify reporting of accounts for the calendar year. All are welcome and encouraged to attend at the Montenotte Hotel at 8pm but get your nominations and proposals in the previous Thursday to Monica Twohig at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to comment on any part of the organisation or races this is your opportunity.
The results of the BHAA 5k race from this morning are now online in Excel / PDF. Just over 200 turned out for the penultimate race of the season.
Next race is the Cork Simon Turkey Trot on December 13th. Be sure to dress up for this one!
