Race Notification: FMC 6k

The next race on the BHAA calendar is the FMC 6k race Sunday January 15th at 11am in Little Island. Registration is open from 9.30am at the Little Island Sports Hall and it is recommended to arrive early as there is always a bit of rush with people querying whether they’re registered or not. You need to be registered for this year to run as a registered runner. If you register for 2017 at a race, you have to run as non-registered at that race as we wouldn’t have time to get through race entries and registrations before the race.

2017 Calendar and AGM

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 @ Refreshments and spot prizes will be provided on the night.

Here’s to another great year of running!

Race Notification: Cork Simon Turkey Trot

*** 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.
