THE BALLYCOTTON ‘10’; THE BEST ROAD RACE IN THE COUNTRY is a one hour documentary which explores and celebrates 40 years of the prestigious road race in East Cork.
From having a little over thirty runners at the inaugural running in 1978, to attracting thousands year in year out nowadays, the growth of the Ballycotton ‘10’ has been extraordinary. A ‘Classic Race at a Classic Distance’, its March date has become one of the standout days in the entire athletics – even sporting – calendar year.
In this special feature documentary, the history, appeal, and status of the Ballycotton ‘10’ will be explored. Many great stories, which have emerged over the last 40 years, will be told, with input from race winners, organisers, athletics enthusiasts, local heroes and national icons.
Funded by the BAI, the documentary is presented and produced by Jordan McCarthy, edited by Tom Maher and the sound engineer is Thomas O’Keeffe.
The programme airs Sunday 28th May @ 6pm on Community Radio Youghal / CRY104fm.
It will be repeated on Wednesday 31st May @ 7.30 pm.
A Community Radio Youghal production (2017).
