Weekend Races 7th - 9th July 2017

Races This Weekend - 18 races so far, see below! Where are you Running?




                                                                                                                               


FEATURE RACE - Brandon Bay Half Marathon and 10K, Kerry

This week the feature race of the weekend is the very unique Brandon Bay Half Marathon and 10K in Kerry. Aside from the amazing scenery, which is unique in itself, this race sets itself apart by being Irelands only full beach half marathon and 10K (start on sand, finish on sand). Obviously, that also makes it incredibly flat, as flat as it gets really!




Entry fee is €40 for the half and €30 for the 10K, which gets you chip timing, tech tshirt and bespoke medal.



Race is on at 9:00am (half) and 10:00am (10K) on Saturday 9th.
