The Ballydehob 10k takes place annually in the small picturesque village of Ballydehob, West Cork around the St Patrick’s Day festivities.
Offering chip timing, and with an AAI permit, entrants can enter either as a runner or walker.
The beautiful scenic route takes runners and walkers along small rural roads, sheltered coastline and historic locations. Starting at the edge of the village of Ballydehob, the route passes alongside the beautiful harbour of Rossbrin with its 500 year old castle and small boats, and finishes on a downhill stretch passing beneath the route of the old Schull and Skibbereen railway, towards the picturesque 12 arch bridge across the estuary at Ballydehob.
The first 100 across the line receive one of the coveted Ballydehob 10k t-shirts to take home to the four corners of the globe.
Proceeds from the event go towards community groups and projects.
