HSE 5k Results

The results of the HSE 5k from this morning are now available in Excel / PDF. Well done to the 228 finishers who raced on a fine crisp Sunday morning. Mark Hanrahan put in a fine performance with a sub 15 minute run. The next 3 finishers were all non-registered runners so unfortunately were not eligible for prizes. Laura Crowe finished 6th overall to win the ladies race in a time of 16:37.

Cork to Cobh 15 Mile Results

The results of the Cork to Cobh 15 mile race are now online in Excel / PDF. We had 745 finishers today which was up on last year. Well done to everybody who competed today.

We must thank local businesses near the start line who accommodated our runners when our planned portaloos didn’t materialise, in particular the Metropole Hotel, Kent train station and Bru Bar and Hostel deserve a mention.

Like all races, this race cannot take place without volunteers giving their time and effort in the weeks leading up to the race and over the race weekend. Thank you to everybody who helped out.

Let us know your thoughts on the online registration. A large proportion of you registered using this method. We can improve on it so would like to get your feedback.

Cork to Cobh Travel – Lack of public transport

Don’t rely on the bus tomorrow
Important notice for anybody intending to travel by train/bus for Cork to Cobh. As mentioned previously here, there are planned engineering works on the rail line so they are down to bus transfers only. We have been contacted by Irish Rail about this. There will only be enough buses for normal Sunday capacity tomorrow as they were unaware of this race. We would strongly recommend car-pooling to avoid long delays or missing the start of race if you’re coming from Cobh.
Please pass this message on to others who may not be online. If you’re driving, try have a full car of sweaty runners after the race!

For those who didn’t get an email to check their details, please check the final list. All emails received by us today have been updated offline. That link will bring you to the race day entry list this evening sometime. You can let us know up to and even after the race if there are any issues with your details. The sooner the better.
