On the plus side, final reminder to see you at the AGM tonight.


Race Notification: FMC 6K and AGM Reminder

The next race on the BHAA calendar is the FMC 6k on Sunday January 14 at 11am. Registration takes place at the Little Island Sports Hall from 9.30am. This race is usually quite busy so it is advisable to get there early. Queues tend to build up when there are queries about registration for 2018. To avoid this, please ensure you get your annual registration details to us by Saturday at noon. This means

  • Excel method: emailing Excel sheet to (use and until further notice) and printing and sending this to Kevin Cummins with cheque payable to Cork BHAA at the address provided on the sheet. This is the preferred method.
  • Online form: completing this and sending printout and cheque to Kevin Cummins.

You cannot register for 2018 at the race and be eligible to run as a registered runner in that race. This would result in even longer queues at registration.

A final reminder that the Cork BHAA AGM takes place this evening (Thursday) at 8pm at the Ambassador Hotel. This is your chance to have your say on the running of the BHAA in Cork. We are always looking for new people to join the committee and the continued success of the BHAA depends on attracting new people to the committee to replace those leaving it.
