West Cork Islands Summer Run Series 2019

The West Cork Island Run Series is a collection of fun runs that take place across 5 of the West Cork Islands each year. Events have been taking place on the Islands for the last number of years, but now under the Sports Hub umbrella and since 2016  these events are being actively promoted as a series to encourage more people to take part. 

While it is not a prerequesite to take part in all 5 events, it is hoped that people would try complete all 5 events over the summer period. Numbers have grown steadily across all events since 2016 with over 400 people taking part in the series in 2018. The events are non competitive, fun and encourage people of all ages and abilities to take part. Local communites work with Cork Sports Partnership to ensure each event is run effectively. The schedule for the 2019 series is :

  • Bere Island Mid Summer Run- Saturday July 13th
  • Cape Clear 5k- Saturday August 3rd
  • Heir Island 5k- Saturday August 10th
  • Sherkin Island Do Run Run- Saturday August 24th
  • Whiddy Island 5k- Saturday September 28th
