The Cork AAI 2016 County Road Championships will take place in Castlelyons, North Cork, at 10am, on Thursday March 17th (St. Patrick’s Day). The event will be organised and hosted by St. Nicholas A.C. and your race H.Q. for the day will be the Castlelyons Community Hall.
This event is open to Novice and Masters Men & Women. Masters categories start at O/35 (on the day of competition) and continue upwards in 5 year blocks. There are team categories at O/35 and O/50. An athlete can downgrade for team purposes; e.g. a 56 year old individual competing at O/55 can declare on an O/35 team (but cannot also score on another team).
The Novice & Masters races will be run together. The distance is 4 Miles for both Men and Women. The Ladies will start at 10am sharp followed by the men around 10:20am. This is a Championship race and competing athletes must wear a club singlet and be registered (paid-up) members for 2016. The same event last year in Midleton drew almost 50 club entries and we’re expecting an equally big turnout this year.
