FOLLOWING the great success of the Dunmanway 10k last year, the race is back in 2012 for its third year.

The race numbers increased in 2011 from 253 to 365 and the entries to date are indicating a big turn out again this year.

The route will be the same as last year, the start of the 10k or 6.2mile route will start at the top of the Quarry Road and Finish near the GAA grounds at Prospect Lawn. The route is a nice scenic route with a tough short hill just before the 6-mile mark and a fast downhill finish for the last 200 yards.

There will be prizes for all the normal race category age groups with additional prizes for the course record, fastest local male and female, fit4life and more spot prizes.

Over 360 competitors took part in last year’s race with a number of people walking the 10k route.

Walkers will start at the same time as the runners this year.

The race will take place on Sunday, June 17th at 11am and registration for the reduced cost of €10 is available online up until the Friday and you can register on the day at the GAA pavilion from 9am for €12.

All competitors either walking or running must register and all participants must be over the age of 16.

This year’s race will be timed by chip timing, your time will be recorded once you pass over the start and finish line.

Please come and support the competitors on route or at the finish line, the first competitor should be across the finish line just after 11:30am.
