Tipperary...Notice for the Deadmans 5 mile road race, Carrick on Suir - Fri 6th June 2014

The third race of five in the Three Counties Challenge is coming up on Friday, the 6th of June with the Deadman's 5 mile in Carrick-on-Suir in S.Tipperary.

From the organisers......The 3 Counties Challenge moves back to County Tipperary for Race 3 in the series, the Carraig Hotel "Deadman's 5" mile road race on Friday 6th June @ 7:30 sharp. This race, now in it's 9th year, starts at the picturesque Ormonde Castle in Carrick on Suir, and goes through the center of the town before taking in a loop of the famous Deadman's Boreen, finishing on a lovely long straight stretch at the back of the Town Park , 5 Miles in total. It is mostly flat, with a short drag in the middle, but mile 4 on is slightly downhill, so a good time is possible.
