On July 28th 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 including 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.
Patrick O’Donoghue of the Gleneagle hotel, Oliver Kirwan of Elite Events and some of the runners taking part in the event were at the Gleneagle this week to launch this year’s run. Oliver, Race Director said, “Run Killarney is a wonderful mid-summer event that draws people from all over the country to Killarney for a great day out. We’ve been lucky with really good weather conditions the last few years and it always turns into a party once the running is done. We’re looking forward to welcoming more than 2500 runners this year and the event will be bigger and better than ever.”
