The fast and flat Maynooth 10K + 5K is very popular with runners of all abilities. With its scenic route through St. Patrick’s College and Carton House Hotel, chip timing by Pop Up Races, accurate course measurement and professional organization, the event has gone from strength to strength in the 8 years of its existence.
The 10k and 5k will start at 10.30am with warm-ups at 10.15am. The courses are the same as last year with the 10K starting in St Patrick’s College and the 5K on Convent lane, with synchronized start times there will be no interference between the two races. Walkers and Joggers are very welcome in the 5K.
Maynooth 10K + 5K is organized by MEC PTA, the Parent teacher association for Maynooth Education Campus and by Maynooth GAA. It is a fundraiser for the development and upkeep of the new multi-purpose playing fields, walking track and ancillary facilities for the local schools and community and the new school campus.
Excellent Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Ladies and Men in the 10K and 5K plus some spot prizes on the day. Refreshments will be served after the race in the school.
