This year's 'Deadman's' is being run in conjunction with the Clancy Brothers' Festival, so there is sure to be plenty 'ceol agus craic' on the night.
The race proceeds along Carrick's main street and through the famous Sean Kelly Square before leaving the town to complete the Deadman's loop and finish back at the town park in Carrick.
Registration will take place at the Carrick Swans GAA Centre (beside the Library and Garda Station) from 6pm and parking will be available there also. The entry fee is €10 and you can enter online at
