The race is hosted annually as
a fundraiser for the continued development and upkeep of the local
Community Centre. It is a joint venture between Ballintotis Area
Community Council and East Cork A.C with the help of Ballycotton
Running Promotions. James McCarthy of the host club has a remarkable
record in the event and will be bidding for his seventh consecutive
triumph in the race.
This year the Ballintotis ‘4’ will feature chip timing, with a timing mat located at both the start and the finish line.
After attracting a record entry
of 1175 runners in 2015, Ballintotis is set to welcome a huge number of
runners again this year.
For those who might fancy something a little less taxing, the traditional ‘4’ Mile Walk will begin at 6.30pm. The entry fee is 10 euro per person, but there is no online entry.
All queries concerning the Race and Walk should be directed to Race Directors - Sean Murphy and John Cashman, on 086-8778182
