We are located in Cork city, on the south coast of Ireland, an area steeped in athletic tradition, with plenty of local races for us to exercise our legs. Founded in 1982, Eagle AC is recognised as one of Cork's friendliest running club. Every year many club members travel as a group to one or more Foreign destinations to partake in various race distances.
The Club currently has over 80 members of varying age and athletic ability. All our members are adults and approx 35% are ladies. As well as enjoying running as a fun and sociable leisure activity, Eagle AC members proudly represent the club at all levels of competition, ranging from local 5k - 10m road races, national championships, national and international marathons and almost anywhere we can run. See the 2007 race schedule for details of where we will be.
While our roots are in road running, many of our members take part in a wide variety of other sports and activities including; triathlons, orienteering, hill running & hill walking, swimming, along with a range of other sports.
The Club competes in road races all year round but in the Autumn we compete in Cross-Country and, during the Spring and Summer, Track and Field.
We train on the CIT track in Bishopstown, twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We also train on grass at The Farm (near the Greyhound Track) on Sunday mornings (except when there's a race on). Along with these sessions, we also have long runs at other times, particularly in the lead up to a marathon.
You are welcome to run with us for a few times, even if yu're not a member, before deciding to join. Why not come along and then decide if Eagle is the club for you?
