The Eyeries 5 Mile Road Race takes place every November, two weeks after the Dublin Marathon. It is organised by Beara A.C. - an enthusiastic group of runners who delight in putting on a great show for competitors who come from near and far to participate. The challenging course begins and ends in the village and is a great test to even the toughest of runners. This year will be the 5th Eyeries 5 Mile Road Race.
The course record is held by Alan O’Shea of Bantry A.C. His winning time of 25:50 in 2016 will be a tough record to beat. The same day saw the fastest time for a female when Ardgroom girl, Shauna Doelken-O’Shea, then seventeen years old crossed the line in a super 32:52.
You don't have to be a serious runner to take part. You don't even have to run - walkers are welcome too. From young to not so young, you are welcome!
