Leitrim Sports Partnership in association with the Leitrim Athletics Board and Carrick Athletics club would like to invite you to the second annual Leitrim Women’s Open 5k Run, on May 22nd in conjunction with Leitrim County Council, Irish Sports Council, Leitrim Athletics Board, HSE, Ocean FM and Shannonside Radio.
This 5km run, jog or walk is going to be a tremendous event, so don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to see the amazing scenery of Carrick-on-Shannon and surrounding countryside.
This is the second year of Leitrim Women’s Open 5K and Leitrim Sports Partnership and the Leitrim Athletics Board are encouraging all female runners, walkers and joggers of all ages, abilities and fitness levels to participate.
The route starts at Summerhill beside the hospital and continues along the N4 turning right onto the Castlecara road, back onto the summerhill road and finishing at the Sports Complex. The race is AAI approved so it’s a perfect occasion for experienced runners, fun runners and walkers to get involved in this exciting ladies only event.
All registered participants are encouraged to fundraise for local charities of their choice or local sports clubs or community groups, but it is not compulsory to raise funds.
All participants of the event will receive refreshments after the race and there will be prizes and spot prizes presented to the different category winners in the Carrick sports complex afterwards.
