Kerry...Preview of the Jack+Jill 10k Kenmare - Sat 24th Apr 2010

This is a charity fundraiser, organized by Kenmare Tri, taking place in Kenmare on Saturday at 3pm.

This race has it's own web-site.

I did this last year, and I can assure you the picture at the left hand side is an indication of the steep gradient !

The race starts in the town centre, and heads north. very soon, you encounter a steep hill. In fact a 650 foot high hill ! There's a great view and some refreshements at the top.

Full details on MapMyRun. Tick the "Show Elevation" box on the right ;o)
