The Streets of Portlaoise 2018


The Streets of Portlaoise 5k Road Race takes place on Saturday 17th March 2018 at 11.00am.  This years event is also the opening race of the KIA race series.

A fast flat course (AAI Measured & Permitted) with a great atmosphere attracting elite runners, walkers and joggers.

This year sees the introduction of a new 5k race route to cater for the increase in the numbers of runners taking part each year and we are also pleased to announce that this year the course will be closed to all traffic for the duration of the race. The race will now start close to the old Centrepoint Shopping Centre on the Mountrath road, run down main street before heading out the ridge road, back up Mountmellick road, right up harpers lane and down the Mountrath road. The finish line will remain at the bottom of Main street Portlaoise.
