The club holds a 5 km race series in Killarney National Park in January and February every year.
This idyllic spot is a perfect location for a 5 km race as the route is located within the grounds of the National Park itself.
There are four races in the series with the prizes being given out at the final event.
2017 Series…11am each Saturday…4th Feb, 11th Feb, 18th Feb & 25th Feb.
Race HQ is at the Old Monastery on Port Road.
This is the 5k course….
Each 5k race is on this 5k route which is probably one of the fastest in Co.Kerry. It has been accurately measured by Jones Counter. The series also has an Athletics Ireland permit.
Each race starts at 11am sharp and costs just €6 to enter (€5 for students).
Prizes…To qualify for a prize, you must complete at least three out of the four races. After the 4th and final race, there will be refreshments and the series prizes will be given out. There are a substantial number of prizes which are in the form of vouchers for local retail outlets in Killarney. One prize per person. In the event that someone wins a top 10 prize and a category prize then they will win the prize of greater value.
