From the organisers..........

The 25th  Annual Kiely Monumental Colligan cup takes place in Colligan wood. This unique event will of course use as it has for the past 23 years the Timing handicap system, What makes the handicap timing system so appealing to all levels of runner’s and joggers is the fact that every participant no matter what their level of fitness, have exactly the same chance of winning. All it takes is for you to know to the second exactly how long it will take you to cover 5 miles of the Colligan wood circuit.
