ABOUT THE KIA RACE SERIES

The Kia Race Series is back in 2019, and promises to be bigger, better and faster than ever.

Aimed at supporting grass roots athletics by increasing participation at established club races nationwide, the Kia Race Series also aims to increase competition for elites around Ireland, with the overall winner, male and female, driving away in a brand new Kia Stonic for 2019 (terms and conditions apply)

Each race will have course record bonus pots of €1,000, sponsored by Kia Ireland, as well as the usual cash prizes on offer by  the host clubs.

This year also brings in a Masters Series. It is open to anyone who is 40 or over in the year of the series, with the overall male & female winners winning a trip for 2 to the European masters (flights, accommodation & entry) in 2020.

In total there will be 9 races in the series, with the participants 5 best scores taken into account when the final league table is complete. Unlike last year, there will be no finale, the series is done solely on a league format.
