This race is usually a pretty low key event with only about 60-80 runners taking part. There are no big prizes or anything like that, it's just a very simple 5k race which is usually held every year on the weekend just before Christmas day. The entry fee is usually just €3 and any proceeds go towards charity.
Course...See map below. You start in Shanagarry, just outside the Church (or near the finish line in the 5 mile race if you know where that is).
Overall, the course is reasonably flat and there are no real hills to speak of.
If you want to have a closer look at the course, I have put the course up on the MapMyRun website. See HERE.
Weather....The current weather forecast is for a breezy mild day.
