Preview of the Passage West 10 km road race...Fri 17th May 2013

Just a reminder that this brand new road race is coming up on Friday, the 17th of May 2013...

The course itself takes in waterfront walkways and some country roads to the west of the town. It certainly isn't an easy course and it can be split into two halves. The first 3.5 miles are pretty flat while there are some 'nice' hills in the second half ;o)

This is a proper road race in every sense of the word. Leevale AC have been involved in getting the course measured properly by Jones Counter. It also has an Athletics Ireland licence.

The local GAA club are offering their facilities for registrations, changing area, showers, post race refreshments and prize giving. Supervised car parks are available at the GAA grounds and the Soccer club.

Proceeds from this race go to Katie's Wish to Walk. I'd ask you to spare a few minutes and visit that website. It would be great if you could come along on the night and support the efforts for this special little girl........Friday, 17th May @7:30pm.

Please note that the race starts 1.2 miles from the registration point. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get there.
