Race Calendar 2017
Another year, another race calendar. The Cork BHAA race calendar for 2017 is now available. As always, the first race of the year is the ESB Cross Country race in Blackrock on Sunday January 8th at 11am. Everybody who was registered with us in 2016 is still registered for this race but get your registrations in as soon as possible. Race entry registration is open from 9.30am at Cork Con rugby club on Temple Hill. Most cross country races require you to be a member of athletic clubs so this is your opportunity to try it out if you’re not in such a club.
Our AGM takes place on Thursday January 12th at 8pm in the Ambassador Hotel. All race organisers and BHAA members are invited to attend to voice your opinion on any matters relating to the Cork BHAA organisation. Nominations and motions to the committee can be submitted to club secretary Monica Twohig by Tuesday January 10th at monirunner.mt @ gmail.com. Refreshments and spot prizes will be provided on the night.
Here’s to another great year of running!
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 turned up and gave so generously either by donating or providing spot prizes. In total, €4,200 was raised for the essential work of Cork Simon.
This was the final race of 2016. Have a lovely Christmas break and see you all in the new year.
Nessan Frawley has plenty of photos on Facebook, check them out below. We have some more photos to come too.
*** UPDATE ***
Due to health and safety concerns, we have changed the route. The race will now start on Bessboro Rd beyond St Michael’s Credit Union.
As usual, we ask that participating companies bring along spot prizes to make the event all the more enjoyable for everybody.
The final race of 2016 is the Cork Simon Turkey Trot which takes place on Sunday December 11 at 11am. This is a 5k race this year with registration taking place at Blackrock Hurling Club from 9.30am. As usual for this race, at registration you must guess how long it will take you to run 5k in and closest times to estimated are the winners. No clock at the finish and no watches allowed. Don’t forget your Santa hats! Entries cost €10 with all proceeds going to Cork Simon to support their very important work.
The race starts and finishes on Bessboro Rd near St Michael’s Credit Union off Skehard Rd in Blackrock. Go straight through the roundabout into Bessboro and follow the road to the left.
At the end of this take a sharp left.
Almost immediately take a sharp right over the footbridge.
Take a left just after the footbridge.
Take this left off the coastal path and follow directions of marked out course to get back onto the coastal path again. Beware of runners coming towards you at this point as it is the beginning of the overlap between out and back.
After reaching the footbridge, you take an immediate left again to loop back to the start on the same route.
The results of the BHAA 5k race from this morning are now available in Excel / PDF. We had a good turn out, helped greatly by the many Wibbly Wobbly Wonders who turned up to complete their 5k training progamme. We hope you enjoyed the race and will be back running with your companies next year. Registration is now open!
Don’t forget our next race is the Simon Turkey Trot in aid of the all too necessary work that Cork Simon do all year around. Please come out and support that on Dec 11. Bring your Santa hats (yes, it’s that time of year again!).

Our next race is the BHAA 5k in Little Island on Sunday November 20th at 11am. Registration is open from 9.30am at the Little Island Sports Hall. As usual, we have a full suite of prizes available with 84 prizes in total up for grabs as well as spot prizes. This is the final standard race of 2016 before the Turkey Trot so one last chance to improve on your 5k time.
We are open for registration for 2017. Please see our Registration page for more details.

The results from the Cork to Cobh 15 mile race from yesterday are now online in Excel / PDF. Well done to all who took part on a lovely autumnal Sunday morning. We had 717 finishers which is 20 more than last year.
A big thank you to all volunteers who helped make this race possible from the regulars to the once-offer stewards, time-keepers, water-givers, sandwich providers, tea-makers, and everybody else in between.
