Final Call for Booming Charleville International Half-Marathon

Jim Hogan Medal 2016 design

The organisers of the Charleville International Half-Marathon, North Cork AC, are making a final call for entries for the 6th edition of its race. This year’s race has seen a huge surge in entries from previous years as its reputation, as a genuine flat and fast PB course, has become established. The club is providing a special finishers medal to all finishers, commemorating Jim Hogan, the 1966 European Marathon champion from Athlacca, near Kilmallock, Co. Limerick, and there is also a high quality technical t-shirt. The race has received a 5 star rating from European Athletics and will be one of the featured events in the European Week of Sport. #BeActive

The race is ideal for all levels of ability because of the easy nature of the course, which has attracted some of the top distance runners in the country over the past number of years, with a lot of the fastest times by Irish athletes set in Ireland being set on this course. This year will see the return of last year’s winner, Ugandan Ismail Ssenyange of Skechers Dubai, who won last years race in a time of 66:04 to provide top class competition for some of Irelands’ top distance runners.

While entries will remain open until Saturday 17th of September, the late entry fee will come into effect from this Friday 8th of September so don’t delay in signing up at www.CharlevilleHalf.com/registration to be part of this event.
