Welcome to North Cork A.C.

Our athletics club and training locations are largely based in the North Cork area. Our main locations for training are;

  • Charleville
  • Mallow
  • Banteer
  • Burnfort

We have members who are from a large catchment area in North Cork and South Limerick. We attempt to be as inclusive as possible within the limits of our resources and the time constraints of our volunteers. We have members from the age of 5 up to and above the age of 65.

While traditionally our club has focused largely on distance running events in both its recreational and competitive forms, we also offer training in the throws events, i.e. Shot Putt & Javelin, as well as sprints training where athletes show a specific aptitude for this event.

Our training aims to develops kids from a young age with various training programmes;

  • Sportshall Athletics – Ages 5 ~ 9
  • Juvenile Athletics/Running – Ages 8 ~ 12
  • Teen/Adults Athletics/Running – Ages 13+
  • Teen/Adults Couch to 5k Running – Ages 13+
  • Adults Endurance Running Group – Age 21+
