Opening Soon

The Lakes 10k (and Half Marathon) in Blessington, Co Wicklow returns for it’s 11th year on Saturday 7th September 2019 at 11am. This is the concluding race of the Kia Race Series 2019.

The route, on closed roads, takes you around a section of the scenic Blessington Lakes.  Starting on the bridge crossing the lake, the route heads towards Manor Kilbride, before you turn back toward Blessington to face the only climb on the route from the 6th to 7th km (you meet the climb twice if you’re running the half marathon).  It’s then downhill to the finish line – be sure to enjoy the views over Blessington Lake! (Twice if you’re running the half marathon).

The half marathon route is two loops of the 10k route, plus that little bit extra.

At the finish line, you can enjoy a tradition of The Lakes 10k – muffins!

There will be cash prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female, in both the 10k and half marathon.
