Event notice...Mount Hillary Trail Race - Sun 30th Mar 2014

The first race of the Munster League 2014 takes place this Sunday, 30th March, in Mt. Hillary, Banteer at 1pm. Registration will take place at the Glen Theatre and you must register here before 12.30 to allow sufficient time to travel to the race start location.

The race is 10km (300m climb) and entry is 10 Euro. The route will be fully marked, following waymarked signs in an anti-clockwise direction mainly along forest roads, but with some open hillside at the top and woodland paths.

There will have a junior race on offer on the day as well. This race will start at 10.45am and will be 2km in length. As usual, only juniors over the age of 10 years can run this race. Any juniors under the age of 10 can run the 'Kiddies Race' but must be accompanied by an adult. This run will be the same as the Junior Race.
