Carney Lissadell 10k


ABOUT THE EVENT: This, the 12th annual Carney Lissadell 10K Road Race, will take place on Easter Monday, March 28th 2016. It is one of the most popular 10k events of the year, with over 300 participants last year alone. The event includes a 10k Road Race, a 10k Walk, and kids fun races beforehand. All registrations will be in the Oxfield Community Centre. The course is accurately measured and is ideal for experienced and new runners. There will be the usual generous prize fund for a large number of categories and post-race refreshments in Oxfield for all participants. This year we are using a manual timing system in order to help us raise much needed funds for the local 11th Sligo Benbulben Scout Group and the Oxfield Community Centre.

REGISTRATIONS: Online: €12, see www.runireland.com. On The Day: €15. Please note all Registrations (incl bib pickups) will be at the Oxfield Community Centre from 9:30am.

START TIMES: 11:00am Kids Fun Races in Oxfield…. 11:30am 10k Walk starts in Carney Village…. 12:00pm 10k Run starts in Carney Village

DIRECTIONS / PARKING: All competitors should make their way to the Oxfield Community Centre for registrations, parking, toilets etc. Carney Village is a 2 minute trot over the road, so your car can stay at Oxfield. Oxfield is located on the Oxfield Road just off the N15 Sligo/Derry Road. The junction is approx 8km north of Sligo, and 1.5km north of Drumcliffe Village. The turn is beside ‘Ben’s Topline Hardware’ and is signed as Oxfield Road L3402. (NOTE: Do not take the junction just after Drumcliffe Village signed for Carney and Lissadell).

THE ROUTE: The race will follow the traditional but majestic route through the famous Lissadell Estate thanks to the kind permission of the Owners of Lissadell. To get an idea of what the route is like take a look at this video from 2011 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkxLe9a-Hl4)
