John Buckley Sports’ 5 km Road Race


by John Desmond Preview of the Cork BHAA ‘John Buckley Sports’ 5 km Road Race – Thurs 19th June (8pm) This is one of the most popular races on the Cork road race calendar and if the weather is kind, it should attract well over 400 runners.
It is also one of the most central in that it is only a short distance from the city centre and yet it is run on mostly quiet roads.
Registration…The event centre for this race is in the Lee Rowing Club building on the Marina. This is located just alongside the Pairc Ui Chaoimh GAA stadium. There is plenty of parking in the area….outside the club house, along the quayside or outside the GAA stadium. See map below. Considering that the number of entries will be high, it might be no harm to get there early.

Cost…As usual for BHAA events, it is €5 for registered runners and
€7 for non-registered. There will be 2 queues…
