The Bantry Bay Run will not go ahead this year.

The Bay Run half-marathon and 10km event has been organised by The Maritime Hotel since 2014 and, during this time, has raised over €36,000 for various local charities including Bantry Hospice.

A spokesperson for the event said:

“Having taking into account the increasing costs associated with organising this event, we have decided not to go ahead with the Bay Run this year. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the many participants, volunteers and sponsors that have supported this event over the past six years.”
