Munster Mountain Running Association.......The MMRA are the Munster branch of the Irish Mountain Running Association.



Traditionally, they have organised races which go up and down mountains and hill but in recent years, they have organised various trail races in woods to broaden the appeal of their events.

For insurance reasons, you must be a registered MMRA/IMRA member to take part in events. This costs €10 for the year.

You can purchase annual IMRA membership online for €10 to take part in any of the MMRA events. Once this annual €10 fee is paid, many of the races cost less than €10.

For more information on the IMRA, go to their website...
