Kinsale 5 Mile


Kinsale annual 5 Mile Road Race

Belgooly AC hold a 5 mile road race every year on the Friday evening of the Bank Holiday weekend at the start of every August. The registration point for the event is at the Kinsale GAA grounds up above the town and the start time is 8pm. Our race has a reputation of being one of the fastest 5 mile courses around as it starts on a hill and finishes down in the town near level.

If you are coming into Kinsale from Cork, do not take the road that turns left towards the quays. Instead, carry on until you hit a T-junction. Turn left here onto the Bandon road and climb the hill. About 1 mile later at the top of the hill, you will see the GAA grounds on the right.
