UPDATE AT 6/2/23:
Unfortunately due to circumstances outside the control of Clane AC, the 2023 Streets of Clane will not go ahead as planned. Those that have registered will be contacted by email this week with details on when they will be refunded.
Clane AC, in conjunction with Pop Up Races, are delighted to bring you the 2nd Annual “Streets of Clane 5k Road Race”, taking place on Tuesday night, February 21st, around the Streets of Clane, Co. Kildare. This event *sold out* in 2022 with over 800 entrants.
This event is AAI approved and is a unique road race for County Kildare and Leinster. The route is fast and ideal for those looking for an early 5k pb in 2023. We had an incredible in-depth elite field of runners in 2022. The standard of the 5k elite race was phenomenal with over 100 runners achieving sub 17:30 mins.
The night will consist of 2 x 5k races. The Elite Race will kick off the evening @8pm followed by the Open race with an 8:20pm start.
- There will be premium tech t-shirts for the first 500 registered.
- Open Race: Open to all but in order to adhere to traffic restrictions, there will be a 40 minute cut off.
- Elite Race: Open to male athletes who have run sub 17 minutes over the last 18 months, and female athletes who have run sub 20 minutes in the last 18 months.
**Note, There are free entries available to elite athletes. These are available to males who have run sub 15 minutes and females who have run sub 17 minutes over the previous 12 months.
To avail of this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your qualifying time. If you do not have a 5k time, but have a fast time from a different distance, please email that to us and we will review it.
We look forward to welcoming you to Clane for what we hope will be a great night of running!
