Google+ Running in Cork, Ireland: MMRA

MMRA

Munster Mountain Running Association.......The MMRA are the Munster branch of the Irish Mountain Running Association. Traditionally, they have organised races which go up and down mountains and hill but recently, they have organised various trail races in woods to broaden the appeal of their events.

For insurance reasons, you must be a registered MMRA/IMRA member to take part in events. This costs €10 for the year.

You can register for the MMRA / IMRA online and bring a print off confirmation to sign up for membership but the MMRA prefer if you just turn up with the filled out paper form.

Races are just pay on the day in Munster, no pre registration required. Pre-entry is required only for the big events like Ballyhoura and Loop de Loop.

A list of MMRA events can be seen further down this page.

For more information on the IMRA, go to their website... https://www.imra.ie/



The Munster Mountain Running Association (MMRA) will be hold a series of 10 trail races from January to April 2018 throughout the province. For anyone new to trail running, this is a good way to start as it's not as hard as the mountain races which are held later on in the year.

As the poster above shows, there are 10 races in the league and you only need to complete 4 to qualify for a league finisher's prize.

Please note, you must purchase annual IMRA membership online for €10 to take part in any of the MMRA events. Once this annual €10 fee is paid, most of the races in the series cost just €5 each.

You will not be able to run if you turn up at your first race without having purchased online registration.
