Running for Conservation:
The Cheetah Race at Fota Wildlife Park

Eagle Athletic Club's 2023 fundraising journey has been a resounding success, with the spotlight firmly on the unforgettable Cheetah Race held at Fota Wildlife Park.


This annual 5 km road race & 1-mile juveniles race not only tested participants' stamina & determination but also, we proudly raised an impressive €5,500 for wildlife conservation.



Eagle Athletic Club is located in Cork city on the south coast of Ireland. Founded in 1982, Eagle AC is one of Cork’s largest running clubs.

The Club currently has over 190 members of varying age and athletic ability. All our members are adults and approx 40% are women. 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 parkruns and 5k – 10m road races, national championships, national and international marathons and almost anywhere we can run.

While our roots are in road running, many of our members take part in track races, cross country, triathlons, trail & hill running, adventure races etc.

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. Along with these sessions, we also have weekend long runs and regular tempo sessions.
