Killarney 10 Mile Road Race
A beautiful but challenging 10-mile road race in Killarney, Co. Kerry, Ireland to raise funds for a much needed microtrack for juvenile athletics.
Killarney's first micro-athletic running track is poised to become a reality. The facility, which will feature four lanes and an astro-turf football pitch, is to be built in the grounds of St Brendan's College.
A special fundraising 10-mile road race around Killarney town is to take place on Saturday 23rd of September 2017 (time 9:00am), and is expected to attract a host of elite athletes.
"People of all abilities, elite and recreational athletes, joggers and walkers are invited," said Jerh Griffin of the organising committee.
"We are excited at the prospect of this race being an annual event to support the students and the community in this race as they jointly seek to create a mini style university approach to physical education in a sustainable way," added Jerh.
Race director Alan Ryan, who is a past pupil of St Brendan's, has great experience as he organises many events including the Lakes of Killarney marathon, Hardman triathlon and Kerry Way Ultra Marathon.
