Countdown to race day!

The Dick Whelan 10km memorial race

Prizes for male and female
1st €100
2nd €75
3rd €50

The Denis McKennedy cup will be presented to the first Caragh Gfc member to cross the finish line

This is an out and back fast course which is a great tempo run for those doing marathon training.
With only 2 hills it is one of the fastest 10kms around with a downhill finish for the last 1km

Race will start from Caragh GFC grounds, from there you will turn right out the gate and head for Hatters Cross. Turn right here and head straight down the canal, then over Murphy’s lock bridge.
The 5k turn will be just before Digby Bridge

A 5km fun run will also take this route, turning for home at 2.5km

We will also have 4 juvenile races on the night:
U/7 300m
U/9 600m
U/12 800m
U/15 1km
