Notice...Ballintotis 4 mile road race in East Cork - Thurs 19th Apr 2018


After a long winter of dark evenings, it's time to look ahead to the upcoming summer season of evening road races. In Cork, the tradition was been that the Ballintotis 4 mile opens the summer season of evening races and the Ballycotton 5 at the end of August used to bring it to a close.

This year, the Ballintotis 4 mile will be held on Thursday the 19th of April 2018 at 8pm. Last year, they  managed to attract almost 900 runners which is a huge number for an evening road race.



They will have timing mats at the start and finish line so everyone will get an accurate time.
