The annual Enniscorthy 10K road race takes place on Sunday, 12th February at 12pm and is being sponsored this year by Creane & Creane Insurance.
This is the 7th year of the race which is run annually by Slaney Olympic AC as a fundraiser for the club. It is open to both runners and walkers. The race has grown in popularity and last year had an entry of over 600 between runners and walkers.
There is a generous prize fund with a first prize of €150 for the first male and the first female home. Added to that, there is an event record bonus of €250 on offer if the winners (male and female) break the course records. Enniscorthy Motor Company is kindly sponsoring the bonus prizes. The men’s record stands at 29.35 and the women’s record is 34.40. There are also prizes for 2nd to 5th in the open category as well as for the winners in veteran and junior categories. Team prizes (teams of 4) will be awarded to the winning men’s and ladies’ teams. There will be spot prizes throughout the field.
Race headquarters is at Shamrock’s GAA Club in Clonhaston where runners can pick up their numbers and timing chips. There will also be changing facilities. Post race refreshments and prize giving will be in St Senan’s school adjoining the GAA club.
