Enter In Advance for Greencastle 5 Mile


from Northern Ireland Athletics This year 2009, Greencastle 5 Mile Road Race are proudly celebrating their 24th Annual five mile road race, and already looking forward to our our 25th Anniversary in 2010.

This years run is in aid of the Ulster Cancer Foundation and for the first time there will be a wheel chair race which starts at 12:50, due to health and safety reasons there is a seperate walk at 11am.

All 2009 Online entrants, walkers and runners, will be entered into a draw which will take place at the prize giving ceremony afterwards. The star prize is a weekend for two at the K Club Golf & Spa Resort – 5 Star Hotel in Co Kildare worth €3000

This Annual race is also a very significant event in the local athletic calendar. Each year a host of locals and many members of the wider competitive running fraternity volunteer to slot into the many behind-the-scene and off-the-course stewarding roles.

This Greencastle Road Race has taken on a life and a meaning of its own, a life which is probably born out of an individual and collective desire to do what we can for the greater good of all. Over the years this ‘life and meaning’ has witnessed tens of thousands of pounds being donated to various charities.
