The Gleneagle Run Killarney 10k and half marathon launch for 2017
On July 22nd runners from all over the country and around the world will descend on Killarney for the Gleneagle Run Killarney 10k and half marathon. This event caters for all running abilities and is open to everyone, men and women alike, walkers, newcomers and people who just want a challenge and a great day out. The routes give competitors the chance to run one of the world’s most breathtaking and scenic road races through Muckross House and the Killarney National Park.
The 10k and half marathon routes are fast downhill courses. The half marathon starts at Molls Gap and continues through the National Park to the finish line at the Gleneagle Hotel.
All those crossing the line will receive a customised t-shirt and finisher’s medal and can embrace the party atmosphere at the Gleneagle hotel.
Michael Healy-Rae, was on hand in Killarney to help launch the event, “Run Killarney is a brilliant event and I have often spoken to people all over the country who have taken part and enjoyed it thoroughly. The National Park is unrivalled in its scenery and everyone taking part will be treated to a great day out.”
Special group rates are available by emailing email@example.com . The event is currently 80% full and has sold out for the last two years so register now to avoid disappointment.
Follow the event on Facebook and twitter @RunKillarney for the latest news, training tips race preparation and much more.
Every year we get lots of walkers taking part in the Run Killarney Half Marathon and the 10K. Walkers enjoy the opportunity to walk the route on the Ring of Kerry Road when the road is closed to traffic. Walkers would not get the opportunity to walk this route usually as the road would be too busy with buses and heavy traffic.
No matter how long it takes you all event services will be available to runners and walkers. So if you would rather walk than run sign up now.
