Notice...Kingdom Come 10 miler & 5km, Castleisland Co.Kerry - Sun 17th May 2015

The annual 10 mile & 5km road race in Castleisland, Co.Kerry is coming up on Sunday the 17th of May...

Considering its location, it is sure to attract a lot of runners from Kerry, west Limerick and the general west Munster region. Castleisland is only a short distance from Killarney and Tralee and the race should be of particular interest to runners there.

This race is organised by An Ríocht Athletic Club, one of the major clubs in the county.

You can enter and find a lot more info on the race website...

It's worth mentioning also that money raised from the road race will be used for maintenance of the outdoor track in Castleisland. It is the ONLY 400 metre track in Kerry and is used by athletes from clubs in Kerry and west Limerick. If children are going to be involved in the sport then they need access to proper local facilities like this. Perhaps for that reason alone, this race is worth supporting.

From An Ríocht AC...An Riocht Lee Strand 10 mile and 5k...The fourth annual An Riocht Lee Strand 10 mile and 5k Road Race will this year be held on May 17th starting at 11am. Last year’s event was a huge success when seven hundred took part, creating an unrivalled atmosphere from start to finish with a great buzz as all participants finished on the track. Some of the people taking part will be experienced runners competing against each other and the clock, but the main body of participants will be those who will have their own personal goals, that may be improving on previous times for the event or conquering the distance for the first time. Either way, everybody is sure to have a great experience and will receive plenty of support from everyone.

We are delighted to announce Lee Strand as the official Kingdom Come 10 miler and 5k sponsors again this year!! Big thanks to them for their continuous support of the event.
