The race offers great value for money, with a very attractive prize structure, and a full list of category prizes, as well as the opportunity to win one of the many spot prizes on offer.

Castlemartyr Resort will again sponsor the top prize of a Year's Membership for their Leisure Centre for the both Mens and Womens race winners. Trabolgan Holiday Village will again sponsor a  Family Weekend Away for the both the race Mens and Womens runners up.

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.

It was announced recently that McCarthy & McGrath, Main Street Midleton, will again sponsor a souvenir for all participants. Everybody who takes part will receive a free running buff.

The organisers have said that there are still several opportunities for sponsors, in various capacities. Interested companies and individuals should call 086-8778182.

Race Timing

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.
4 Mile Walk

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
