Clerihan 5 Mile Road Race

The Clerihan 5 Mile road race takes place on Friday 18th July at 7.30pm. Last year was the first promotion of this event and it was a fantastic success with 216 athletes participating on what was a glorious night for running. Once again the organising committee have left no stone unturned as they have put together another great event. Interest at local level has been fantastic with 85 local athletes registered already and that is evident by the number of athletes walking, jogging and running the route. This race is also part of the Joe Grinsell 100km Challenge and the interest in this Challenge is just phenomenal and on a poignant note, this event last year was Joe’s last race with us. So pencil in Friday 18th July, Clerihan, 7.30pm start into your diary and hopefully we will see you there.
