John Buckley Sports Cork City 10 Miler

Monday, August 20th, 2018

In association with SuperValu & Ó Crualoaí

Hosted by St. Finbarr’s A.C.

Saturday 8th September 2018 @ 6pm

The race follows our usual Saturday evening format and will be run on the same course as last year – starting on The Marina, on the banks of the river Lee, taking in the Lough Mahon Loop, following the shore of the sea, and returning via the old railway line and finishing on The Marina. The John Buckley Sports Cork City 10 Miler is a flat, fast and picturesque course, which is extremely  popular with both fun and serious runners alike…

There will be over a €3,000 total prize fund, spot prizes, and a 20% discount for all participants in John Buckley sports, which will save you the entry fee on a €100 pair of runners!!!!!! Tea, coffee, sandwiches, and of course “cake” will be served afterwards for you to indulge in, as you discuss your race with friends.
