Roscommon Harriers A.C. are pleased to announce our 4th annual 10 Mile Road Race is taking place this year on July 8th the race is located on the outskirts of Roscommon Town, commencing at 11.30 am. Following on from the success of the last three years we guarantee all participants a fantastic race day, with a new and improved route this year, the new route like previous years is predominately flat, perfect for those hoping to achieve a PB, and ideal for runners new to the 10 mile distance and those wishing to simply enjoy a scenic flat race! Our race distance, course and timing also fits nicely with marathon training. Participants on the day can expect exceptional hospitality not only in terms of the post event food (which is now legendary! and partly the reason for being voted in the top 5, 10 mile road races in Ireland!) but also the local support encouraging runners along the route, if you let us know what club you hail from you might see a sign encouraging you along the way! Every runner receives a complimentary technical t-shirt and medal to remember your day. The race is also chipped and timed. We have added new prize categories this year to be inclusive of a wide range of age groups, individual runners and club teams, please see below for more information.
2016 was a big year for our race, with the largest number of participants with each county in Ireland represented, our hope for this year is that it will be bigger and better, we have taken on board all your feedback, this year sees the introduction of new prize categories, a new and improved route, a finishers medal along with a high quality technical t-shirt for all participants and as always exceptional post food and party.
We want to extend a warm welcome to all participants entering the Roscommon Harriers 10 Mile Road Race on July 8th, and thank you for choosing our race, follow us on Facebook for race updates and important information on www.facebook.com/rosharriers10miler
