2nd Annual Kinnegad 5K is Back on Wednesday 13th July


Set your Summer 5k PB on this PB friendly route. This year’s Kinnegad 5K Race with Elverys Sports and Coralstown/Kinnegad GAA will take place on Wednesday 13th July at 8pm. The Kinnegad 5k is an AAI permitted road race that promises to be an exciting event attracting a host of participants from elite runners to the recreational runner/ jogger and walker.

The addition of Chip Timing by Red Tag Timing for this years’ race will provide much opportunity for participants to chase down their elusive Summer 5K PB’s. The course is PB friendly, mainly flat with one downhill section which makes for fast times. With the start and finish lines on the Main St of Kinnegad, Co Westmeath there’ll be a very festive atmosphere with plenty of support for all participants from gathered spectators. Parking, showers and changing facilities will be available at Kinnegad GAA Clubhouse. As will the post race refreshments. Last year’s male race was won by Sean Connolly from Tallaght AC and Patricia Wlobarczyk from Swords won the female race. With over 400 entries last year, this year’s race promises to be bigger and better. A prize fund of €1200 for the Senior prizes with 1st place receiving €300 prize. There are also Prize Categories: for Masters +40, +45, +50, +55 and +60. There are Junior Prizes (u19) and 1st team. Prizes are sponsored by Elverys Sports.
