Notice...Ballynonty 10 mile road race, Tipperary - Sun 30th July 2017

This 10 mile road race is coming up on Sunday the 30th of July 2017 at 11am. It could probably be best described as a 'back to basics, no frills' 10 mile road race.

There is no chip timing, no dry fit tops, no medals, no online entries, no early bird entry, no late bird entry, no goodie bags or any of the other stuff. Just a good quality old fashioned 10 mile road race over an accurately measured course for a very modest price with a great spread afterwards.

The village of Ballynonty is in South Tipperary and is just a few miles off the M8 motorway.

The race is organised by Ballynonty AC who have a website HERE.
