Notice...Beaufort 10k road race, Kerry - Thurs 1st Jan 2015

The annual Beaufort 10k road race is coming up in Co.Kerry on Thursday the 1st of January at 12 noon. This race is organised by the Star of the Laune AC and is always a popular one with runners.

The entry fee is €15 and this include a dry-fit t-shirt.

There is also a bonus for breaking the course record of 29:45 set by John Lenihan. 

Beaufort is about 5 miles west of Killarney. Look for the signpost on the N72 Killarney - Killorglin road.

Race HQ is at Beaufort Community Hall which is at the western side of Beaufort.

As for the course itself, there are a number of minor pulls but nothing of consequence. The first and last mile are largely flat while the rest of the course varies between 30 and 40m above sea level.

The view below shows the junction near the one mile mark with the Reeks in the distance visible for most of the race.

It's probably best described as a traditional club organised 10k race. No better way to kick off the year.
