The Ballinamore Festival Road Races this year will provide a wider range of opportunities than ever before on Wednesday, August 14.

This year sees the introduction of the Leitrim 10K Road Championship for the leading Leitrim athletes and underage races for younger runners at St Felim’s Playing Field meaning every category of athlete from Under 9 to the oldest Masters will be catered for.

The 10K and 5K Roadraces offer runners a unique choice as competitors have a choice of a 10K and a 5K with the same start and finish linea, the courses accurately measured by an AAI approved Course Measurer. Walkers and joggers also are not neglected with numerous additional prizes raffled among all finishers.

Entries for the 10K and 5K can be made at www.runireland.com or direct to Patricia Griffin, Aghadark, Ballinamore. Entries can also be made from 6.00 on the evening of the races at Ballinamore Sports Hall. All participants receive a special Ballinamore AC t-shirt sponsored by Waterways Ireland who are supporting the race.
