Tommy Ryan Memorial 5 mile Returns for its 35th Year!

This year marks the 35th Tommy Ryan Memorial 5 mile and it will run at 11am on February 18th 2024. In support of the local community €2 from every entry will be donated to Carrigaline Meals-on-Wheels, and Carrigaline Foroige youth diversion project.

The race will take place over the usual course. It's one of Cork's longstanding race routes, where every mile tells a story, and Carrigaline always lends itself to some exciting head-to-head battles. Whether your skills lie in the uphill’s, the down hills, or the flat road speed to the finish line, Carrigaline has it all!

Last year there was a race against the clock with Lizzie Lee, Leevale AC running a superb race to break the 28-minute course bonus for the ladies and Pat Hennessy of Waterford AC narrowly missing out on the men’s 25-minute course bonus, the incredibly windy & wet day added to the challenge, but that 25 min barrier remains standing.

We would like to thank our very generous sponsors the Edge Sports Shop for their ongoing sponsorship of our club event and as a result we have an incredible array of prizes. Our course bonus returns this year in collaboration with Coughlan DeKeyser Architects, and we are incredibly grateful to have them on board.
