Kerry...'Lapping of the Lakes' 10k race - Killarney (2pm)

This charity event takes place next Saturday, the 18th of October at 2pm in Killarney. If the weather co-operates, this should be a stunning location for a race as it goes through the National Park with the mountains of Kerry as a backdrop.
Note that the registration and the race is on the Western side of the town of Killarney. If you are coming from Cork, the quickest route is probably to take the Northern bypass as if you were heading for Killorglin but turn in towards the town at the last roundabout. Look for the church spire and you can't go wrong.

Really enjoyed the race. It was very well organised and the great rout on largly traffic free roads provides some fantastic views of the lakes and mountains. I could not recommend this race highly enough. Absolutely brilliant.
