Newbridge Hockey Club are delighted to launch our very first 5/10k road run for 2018.The run takes place on Sunday April 8th on the roads of the scenic Curragh of Kildare, taking in views across the plains including Braveheart Hill. The race will loop back around finishing at the starting point. Taking place on quiet roads, it’s a fast route ideal for PB’s.
Both races will start at Lumville Cross, heading toward the Curragh Camp, taking a left before the Curragh Golf Club heading toward Donnelly’s Hollow. At Donnelly’s Hollow take a right turn toward Blackrath. Where the road splits for Blackrath, the 5k will turn back. The 10k runners will continue onward past Braveheart Hill, past the firing ranges. At the T junction take a right turn towards Brownstown, there will be marshals at the turn back point.
We will have a lead bike so no one will get lost, unless you decide to take a run across the plains!!!
There will be a water station along the way (tbc).
Kildare Civil Defence will be on hand with a roving jeep, two bikes and four first aiders.
We would urge all of our junior members to get involved too as the 5km is open to walkers and runners of all abilities.
