The 9th running of the Fields of Athenry 10km will take place on St. Stephen's day, December 26th at 11am.
Over the last number of years this has has become one of the leading road races in the country, and this year we aim to raise the bar higher. The race returns to its now traditional route, finishing under the medival arch in Athenry.
A Bonus for early entrants.
Entry fee is reduced to €18 up until 31st October.
From November 1st entry fee will be €20.
With a bit of luck we'll avoid the severe weather conditions that forced the race to be postponed twice last year. Anbody who deferred their entry by emailing us in advance is automatically entered into this years race.
For that you get an accurately measured, chip-timed race, a fast course, lots of refreshments afterwards, plenty of water and a great opportunity for a PB.
Over the next few weeks, we'll be announcing some extra surprises for the race. But we'll start this one.
Free Entry to the long distance traveller.
We have people travel far and wide to this race, with addresses in UK, USA and even Dubai featuring in the entry list last year. As a small bonus, we will refund the entry fee to the person who travels the furthest to the race. No cheating by using your Aunt's address in Wellington NZ - you'll have to prove you made the trip!
No matter how far you travel, there'll we a warm welcome there for you on 26th December.
See you all there.
