Goals and Proceeds of the Race

The goals of the Kinsale 10 mile road race include;

(1) Hosting a national standard event that runners of all levels from all over Ireland can feel free to participate in


(2) To use this race to raise funds for Kinsale Community School Athletics Track (which is an amazing facility to have on our door step) and for Riverstick/Kinsale Athletics club. This year we are delighted to be able to donate a share of the proceeds from our race to the very worthy Kinsale Youth support services.
All club members and the race organising committee are giving their time and effort on a 100% voluntary basis to help raised these funds so that we can further invest in local sports participation, achievement and enjoyment and these causes.

This is a fully licensed Athletics Ireland event that is being organised to the highest standards by local
people who are passionate about our sport and passionate about Kinsale and the surrounding areas.


We are very thankful to Kinsale Community School for having the vision to develop a 300m track and
field facility. This facility is a fantastic benefit to the whole community and surrounding areas of
all ages, of all abilities, across all sports and across all fitness levels from complete beginner to an elite
sports person.

​So finally we wish to say thank you very much for your support of our race and our local clubs and we look forward to seeing you on race day.
