Member Profile – Padraig O’Herlihy

This month we have a chat with Fit4Life member Padraig O’Herlihy who joined the 0-5km group in October 2016 and has since become a stalwart member of the club. It is said that running is easier when you have a running buddy and the coaches at the 0-5km didn’t take long to spot the ‘bromance’ developing between Padraig and fellow participant Bernard as they upped their mileage. The pair have  gone on to represent the club at a number of 10-mile and half marathon races and now have their sights set on the Dublin marathon.

Togher AC Hits the Headlines

Togher AC was profiled in the Evening Echo in February with a great article highlighting the pride in the club, the benefits of joining a community of runners of all ages and abilities and the talent within the club. Thanks to all our members who featured in the piece.

We are honoured and delighted to share the news that Togher AC has been awarded Best 5k in Cork for 2017 – and for the second year in a row – with 40% of the total vote. This is testament to the commitment and dedication of our many volunteers who work hard to make this such a successful event in the Cork running calendar.
