Welcome to the fourth annual Clonpriest 5K Road Race & Walk - Voted the BEST 5K in Cork
Clonpriest 5K Road Race & Walk
Set in the beautiful village of Gortroe in East Cork, the Parents Association of the local National School invite you once again to join us on the roads to walk, jog or run this Fast, Flat 5K PB course.
For 2016 the evening promises to be an even bigger and better event than last year.
- Chip timing is back and means that race results and your official race time will be available once you cross the line.
- Our route has a maximum elevation of just 15 metres so it IS a really Flat course - many claim it, but few deliver it!
- ONLINE REGISTRATION will speed things up but you can still register on the night if you prefer
We'd like to welcome onboard our new main sponsor for 2016

Welcome to Clonpriest 5K
Every runner was once a beginner. Don’t feel that the rest of us were born with running shoes on, and that you have missed your chance.
There is no “too late” to start running, and many regular runners take it up in their forties or later.
Running is simple, cheap and easy, while at the same time being one of the best ways yet invented to get fit, lose weight, improve your self-confidence and meet new friends.
Click the Couch to 5K logo for a great plan to get you started on your own or see the Athletics Ireland site for details of a club near you where runners of all levels are welcomed and supported as they get fit together in groups of similar abilities.
A 5K race is a nice distance and a very achievable target for newcomers to the sport and remember...
“The miracle isn’t that I finished . . . The miracle is that I had the courage to start.”
