Carrick on Suir A.C. recently announced the details of their third annual Outfield Sports/Asics 3 Counties Challenge, which takes place in the Sunny South East between June and August this Summer.
1) The first race takes place under the scenic Comeragh Mountains in Rathgormack ,Co. Waterford on June 5th (4 Miles from Carrick). All the proceeds from this 5 mile race go to the Irish Cancer Society.

2) Race 2 takes us to the pictureiquse Co. Tipperary village of Ballyneale (2 miles from Carrick) for the Champion Kiely 5 Km on 3rd July. this race, on a flat fast course , is held in honour of one of Irelands greatest Olympians, Tom Kiely.

3) For race 3 the series visits Co. Kilkenny for the Piltown 10km on July 17th, which is partly run in the grounds of Kildalton Agri College. This proved to be our biggest race last year, no doubt helped by the scenic lake surroundings of the college.

All the races are held on Friday Nights with 7:30 starts.
