FMC 4 Mile Results 2015

The results of the FMC 4 mile race in Little Island are now available in Excel/PDF. This had been changed to a 6k during the week to take in a route along the Eastgate business park but due to icy roads it was put back to the original 4 mile route. Start and finish set ups had to be adjusted which caused the delay in the start. Apologies to everybody for that delay in such cold conditions and especially those who couldn’t stick around to make the race. Safety for everybody has to be our main priority.

Kieran Minihane has a large set of photos on Flickr, as does Graham Nudds.

Race Notification: FMC 6k

The next race on the Cork BHAA calendar is the FMC 6k race on Sunday January 18 at 11am. This is usually a 4 mile race but in the interest of safety we have adjusted the route of the race. The start and finish will be in approximately the same locations but the race will now go left into Eastgate Business Park, do a loop and come back out to the main road.

This is always a busy race so please come early to registration which opens at 9.30am at the Little Island Sports Hall. The start is still roughly a mile from registration.

ESB Cross Country Results 2015

The results of the ESB X-Country from this morning are now online in Excel/PDF. Well done to all who turned out on a lovely brisk morning.

A belated happy birthday to Kevin Cummins who turned 70 over the break!

Photos to follow.

Race Notification: ESB Cross Country 5k

The first race of the 2015 calendar is the ESB X-Country 5k on Sunday 11th January at 11am. This is the only cross country race on the BHAA calendar so if you want to try something new this year why not give it a go?  The race consists of 3 laps of the fields near Beaumont School with registration taking place at 9.30am at Cork Constitution.

Be sure to register in advance to be eligible for prizes and pay the cheaper race entry rate for registered runners. Please note, the €10 registration per runner must be with Kevin Cummins in advance of the race. To summarise the process again, the larger companies with team secretaries must use the Excel version of the registration form. Smaller companies can also use this method or use the online form if they prefer. To be registered, the information must be

  • Sent electronically (Excel via email or using the online form), and
  • Print out of Excel/completed online form along with cheque/postal order made payable to Cork BHAA to be sent to Kevin Cummins at the address provided on the registration page.

All this helps with administration of registrations on our end so we appreciate your cooperation.

2014 in review

2014 has been a bumper year for the Cork BHAA in terms of registrations and number of people completing all the races on our calendar. Take a look at the 2013 figures if you want to compare these side by side. These statistics were first reported at the club AGM in the registrar’s report.

The 2015 calendar is now updated so keep the cross country on January 11 in mind for those new year resolutions!

Most races ran

An impressive number of people completed all 19 races in the BHAA calendar. This starts from the Simon race in 2013 up to Maher’s Sport race in November. Brendan Deane has been added to the full list since the AGM after a typo missed him in one race. Sorry about that Brendan!
