Ballyhoura Active


Ballyhoura Active

We had a large crowd for the for our Trail run on Saturday morning on the Ballyhouras. 66 brave runners turned up on a morning which had no promise in it.

We met at the Mountain Bike centre and had the luxury of a roof over our heads as we registered everyone.

Thanks to An Bru AC for all the help and all the support. Everyone enjoyed the route which was short with a lot of variety and twists and turns in it. People commented that it was a real adventure with short sharp climbs on single track, loads of fire road sections and zig,zag down hill trails, a lot of people did a second loop. I don’t think that anyone stopped to do the obstacles on the trim trail. It was a great surprise when I showed people the Nature trail and showed them how to find the hidden animals. There was plenty of Water fruit and biscuits for all at the finish, and there was great banter in the group as all the smiling faces headed home after.

We have our final Ballyhoura Active Trail run in two weeks time Saturday the 5th of March @10 am as we go to Ballinaboola woods.

The reg will be from 9am and I will put a map up on our Website of the route. Ballinaboola woods is just off the road as you head from Ballyhea to Ardpartrick this trail run will be all on fire roads. North Cork AC are the organising club for this run so come along and enjoy the final run.

We are launching the Ballyhoura Active series on Saturday 4th of March in Deebert House Hotel in Kilmallock at 8pm all clubs are invited on the night and there will be refreshments for all.
