Kilbeggan 10mile race Committee have teamed up with the Irish wheelchair association as their charity partner.
The IWA offer services to people with physical and sensory disabilities. In Westmeath they have two Resource Centres, One in Athlone and one in Mullingar.
Funds raised from the kilbeggan 10mile race will go towards the purchase of accessible buses to serve these local Communities.
Course: The race starts on the Moate Road in Kilbeggan at the junction of the Clara Road. This road will be familiar to many as the 'old N6 Galway road' which has now been replaced with the M6 motorway. The race will proceed straight into Horseleap village which runners take a left turn bringing the race onto country roads towards the village of Clara. Before Clara runners take another left turn which brings them on the final 2.75 miles straight back into the finish at Kilbeggan GAA grounds just yards from the race start. The course is a challenging course. While there are no big hills there are numerous smaller challenging inclines including a steep motorway bridge ascent at the 9 mile mark.
