Ballyhoura Active


Ballyhoura Active

With the improvement in the weather and the long evenings the roads and the trails are a hive of activity. Scoil Pol had their 35km and 60 km cycle on Saturday which were well supported, they also had a 5km run/walk it was a great day out and the organisers would like to thank all who showed their support.

With only 2 weeks to go to the Ballyhoura Mountain marathon there has been increased interest from those wishing to walk the Half or full marathon so if you want to sign up please ring 06391300 or email me on please pre book your place as we will not be able to guarantee a meal afterwards otherwise.

The active series will be back on the 13th of May with the 5 mile race in Galbally run by Mooreabbey Milers AC. The series has a few surprises this year we will have a taste of Ballyhoura hamper, we will also have a few sponsored vouchers which will be handed out at each race. All these courses are certified distances and permitted, most of the races will be chipped and all of them will be professionally run.
