Fr. Murphy Athletic Club, in conjunction with Kildalkey GAA Club, announces the running of its traditional St. Patrick’s Day 5 Mile Race around the quiet country roads of County Meath. This year sees the addition of extra masters prize categories for men and women.
Runners, joggers and walkers of all standards are invited to take part in this club-organised, friendly event. The quiet traffic-free roads and welcoming after-event refreshments guarantee that this is a race to be enjoyed and remembered.
For 2011 the event is being run over a new course around the townland of Baskinagh, between Ballivor and Kildalkey.
Details of the course are available here:
Online entry is now open, at a cost of €12.00. Entry on the day is €15.00. Online entry is available until midnight on Monday 14th March 2011. Registration on the day is from 12.30pm to 1.30pm in the Community Centre, Kildalkey. The race starts at 2pm.
The race encompasses the Meath County Road Race Championships of 2011. Here the top senior men’s club teams in the county will fight it out for the coveted St. Brigid’s Cup. The competition for senior ladies and the various masters and other categories will also be equally hard fought.
The Club wishes to acknowledge the cooperation of local Garda, residents, Kildalkey GAA Club and Coillte in the staging of this race.
