Clifden Lifeboat 10k Run
Jun 9 at 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Fundraising for the RNLI and the Clifden Lifeboat
The inaugural Clifden Lifeboat 10k Race took place on the 14th September 2008, in a bid to raise funds for the RNLI and the Clifden Lifeboat.
The event was held close to the anniversary of a tragic event which shocked the West Galway community. The MVF St Oliver sank in bad weather on the 17th September 2004, claiming the lives of 4 local fishermen, including 18 year old Mikey Mullen, who had only been at sea for 6 months.
This race was organised as a tribute to Mikey and the other three fishermen who lost their lives.
Due to the overwhelming positive response we have received following the first race, it was decided to make this into a yearly fixture. The race is open to all athlethes, as well as leisure runners and walkers, and can be entered into individually or as teams of 3 or 4 people.
Race start at the Court House, across from the Topaz petrol station. It is an out and back route, which goes up the scenic Sky road and while walkers will be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and views of Clifden Bay, it is challenging enough for any serious runners.
It returns by the Thomas Whelan Memorial, to finish outside the Alcock and Brown Hotel in the town centre. A water station and race marshalls will be in attendance at the turn back point.
You must give your race number to marshalls at this point before turning back.
The route is accuratly measured by an AAI official, and will be well marked out with markers at every kms (on the road). Marshalls will be in attendance at every junction
