MMRA Winter / Spring League in Munster - Jan to Apr 2018


The Munster Mountain Running Association (MMRA) will be hold a series of 10 trail races from January to April 2018 throughout the province. For anyone new to trail running, this is a good way to start as it's not as hard as the mountain races which are held later on in the year.

As the poster above shows, there are 10 races in the league and you only need to complete 4 to qualify for a league finisher's prize.

The first run is in Corrin Hill, Fermoy on Sun 14 January and there will be 9 others across the province between January and April 2018.

Please note, you must purchase annual IMRA membership online for €10 to take part in any of the MMRA events. Once this annual €10 fee is paid, all of the races in the series cost just €5 each.

You will not be able to run if you turn up at your first race without having purchased online registration.
