Fields of Athenry 10k 2008 – Entries Open


from Athenry Ac website Fields of Athenry 2007
The seventh running of the Fields of Athenry 10k will take place on the traditional date, the 26th of December 2008 at 11:00am. The race will be held over the same course as last year starting beside the railway line in Athenry and finishing under the Arch in the middle of the town. A map of the route is attached below. Race HQ will be in the sports hall of the Presentation College Athenry.

The members of Athenry AC are proud of the fact that runners and walkers of all standards are welcome at this event. We’d be particularly pleased to welcome the many members of the Fit4Life training groups around the county and further afield to this event. From the speediest speedsters to the most leisurely strollers and the most stylish wheelchair athletes, there’s a place for all in the Fields of Athenry 10k. The members of Athenry AC will do all we can to ensure a warm welcome and a quality event next St.Stephen’s Day.

Each participant will be rewarded for their efforts with one of our famous souvenir wooly hats. There will also be special ‘Top 50’ long-sleeved t-shirts which will be awarded to the first fifty people to cross the finish line.
