The McDonald family from Ireland's Fittest Family who will participate in Killea Road Run on Sunday, April 14
With only a few days to go to the 3rd Annual Killea Road Run on Sunday, April 14 preparations are now in full swing for what promises to be a great event in the village.
Both races have generated a lot of interest both locally and from further afield with the 10 mile route proving very popular as it is the only run over this distance in the locality this spring.
The course has been officially measured and certified by AAI and a map of the route is available on our Facebook page. As always 5k is a very popular distance with both seasoned runners and beginners and our course is suitable for all.
This year we are delighted to be joined by one of Ireland’s Fittest Families, the McDonalds from Co. Laois so you can test your fitness against Martin, Cian, Breda & Kate. If you haven’t already registered online registration begins at 11am in Killea Community Centre so come early and bring a friend! Entry to the 10 mile run costs €20 and the 5k will cost €10 for adults. There will be some traffic restrictions in place on the day so we ask everyone to be patient and comply with stewards.
Here’s just some of what you can look forward to:
Accurately measured AAI approved course
Chip timing for all runners
Generous prize fund
Medals for top 3 men & ladies
Rubs available for athletes after the run
Male/female shower/changing facilities
