Countdown to race day!

Mark your calendars for this Saturday, August 3rd, as the Islandeady Cycling Club, in collaboration with Westport AC, is all set to host its much-awaited annual 5 and 10k walk/run event. Taking place at the picturesque Jack's Old Cottage in Islandeady, Castlebar (F23 AW97), this year's charity run holds a special significance as the funds raised will be donated to the Islandeady Community Council and Islandeady GAA/LGFA.

The event promises a day of fitness, fun, and community spirit, and everyone is invited to participate, regardless of age or fitness level. Whether you prefer a leisurely stroll, a steady jog, or a competitive run, the course allows participants to move at their own pace. Moreover, rest assured that the event is officially measured and licensed by Athletics Ireland, with chip timing for accurate results.

The Islandeady Fun Run will commence at 10 am sharp on Saturday, August 3rd, starting and finishing at Jack's Old Cottage, Derrycooraune, Islandeady. The route spans 5km, taking participants on a scenic journey in a clockwise direction, culminating back at Jack's Cottage. Those opting for the 10km challenge will complete the route twice. Ample parking facilities will be available near Jack's Cottage, making it convenient for all attendees.

Early birds can take advantage of a special offer by registering for just €15 (plus booking fees) per adult on www.eventmaster.ie before 12 noon on Friday August 2nd. For those preferring in-person registration, the fee will be €20 per adult on Friday, August 2nd, or Saturday, August 3rd. Entrants under the age of 16 can participate for free, making it an excellent opportunity for families to come together for a day of healthy activity.

Race numbers can be collected from Jack's Cottage on Friday evening (6:00 to 7:00 pm) or on the morning of race day (8:30 to 9:30 am). The race briefing will commence at 9:45 am, ensuring that all participants are well-informed and ready to go.

So, gather your friends, family, and colleagues, dust off those running shoes, and join us for a day of fun, fitness, and giving back to the community.
