Corofin Loops – 8k and 10 Mile
Nov 7 at 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
After a COVID enforced break in 2020, the annual Corofin Loops races are back this year!
Once again Corofin Athletic Club are offering two options, an 8k race over a very flat course, and a 10 mile race that is a little more challenging, but nothing too steep or taxing!
The 10 mile race will start at 9am with the 8k starting at 9.30am. Please note the early start, which has been chosen to take advantage of quiet roads at that time on a Sunday morning. The good news is that you should all be home well before lunchtime to enjoy the rest of your day (or soak your weary bones in a bath!!)
Race entrants for both races are asked to assemble at the local Community Centre (Dr. Duggan Hall) 15 mins prior to the start of their chosen race.
First, second and third place prizes will be awarded for men and women in each race, plus multiple age category winners. The top prizes in the 10 Mile race (men and women), are €200 cash plus a perpetual trophy, with €150 cash plus a perpetual trophy for the 8k race. These are amongst the best prizes on offer for road racing in the west.
In compliance with Athletics Ireland Covid protocols, only online registrations are permitted. Entry for the 8k race is €20 until 30th September (early bird rate) and €25 thereafter. Entry for the 10 mile race is €30 until 30th September (early bird race) and €35 thereafter.
Further details are available from our facebook page – Corofin AC or email Niamh on [email protected]
Numbers for each race are limited to 200, again in accordance with Athletic Ireland protocols.
Hope to see you there, and good to be back.
