Kerry...Killarney Lions Club Winter 5k Running League

Killarney Lions club is organising a Winter/Spring running league starting on January 9th 2012. The league will run on Monday nights starting at 7pm sharp. The league will run over 8 nights. To be eligible for prizes participants must run 5 races.

Everybody is welcome to participate from walkers to juveniles to experienced runners and the league is organised in such a way that all standards are catered for. In the first week everybody will start the run at the same time. As usual everybody’s finishing time is recorded.

The following week the slowest finishers will start first and the quickest runners will start last. This gives everybody an equal chance of winning the run each week. League tables are compiled using the participants finishing position. The runner that finishes first scores 1 point. The runner that finishes thirty first scores 31 points. The runner with the lowest points total at the end of the series wins the league. Staggered start times are adjusted each week according to new finishing times.

There are 8 runs in the series. To be eligible for prizes participants must complete 5 runs. Registration will be at the Kerry Parents and Friends building from 6pm on Monday Jan 9th. All participants MUST WEAR HIGH VISIBILITY VESTS.

Entry fee is €5 per race or €35 for 8 races. Prizes are being given in the usual categories. Get the new year off to a healthy and fun start and all in aid of a good cause.

Directions.......Registration is at the Kerry Parests and Friends Building at the Monastry next to the Cathedral at the western side of the town of Killarney. If you are coming from the direction of Cork or Tralee, take the bypass that goes around to the north of the town. At the last roundabout (pictured A below...all trees, no buildings)....take the second left and head south.
