Farranfore St. Stephen's Day 5K
As we all know we cannot hold a Road Race as normal this year, however, in association with Farranfore Maine Valley Athletic Club we have decided to hold our 59th annual road race as a VIRTUAL event.
Farranfore St. Stephen's Day 5K is the main fundraiser for our athletic club, with the proceeds used for promoting athletics in the community. We will also be funding the long awaited development of the Firies National School All Weather Sportsground.
Participants can support the race and run in their own localities. It will have distances of 2km and 5km to help encourage runners / families of all ages to participate. The events will take place virtually from Thursday 24th to Tuesday 29th December.
Entry fee is €10 5K & €5 2K You can run the distance as often as you like within the specified dates. Simply upload your result online through myrunresults to be in with a chance of winning our many spot prizes. Kindly sponsored by the local community race sponsors by way of vouchers. We want to keep all proceeds for this event local so to support in these uncertain times.
Health and safety is top priority and it is too soon to have a mass participation event. We eagerly await the time when we can have road races again but until then we hope that you can help us in our fundraiser and promotion of athletics in Kerry.
