Stook 10 Mile Road Race (Gowran, Kilkenny)


Stook Ten Mile Road Race Dungarvan Church, Gowran, Co. Kilkenny
18th November 2012. Hosted by Gowran AC.

We will be accepting entries on the day from 10.00am – 11:30am in the Parish Hall, in Dungarvan Village, Gowran, Kilkenny.
No late entries after this time.

Stook 10 is hosted by Gowran AC and is set over an challenging but enjoyable 10-mile route. In choosing the route for the Stook Ten, we went looking for an end-of-year road race challenge that will be fun to compete in and offer an epic finishing couple of miles.  Stook Ten provides a chance to experience some of Kilkenny’s most beautiful scenery, the Stook Ten winds across gentle valleys and up country roads before emerging at the crest of Stook Hill. With stunning views down to the finish, every participant will be rewarded with a super fast 2 miles of continuous downhill to the finish line in Dungarvan village.
