Harriers’ race series starts in April

Roscommon Harriers Athletic Club are hosting their annual race series in April. This year all races are 5km in distance, perfect for beginners, improvers or for runners wishing to achieve a 5km personal best.

  The course, which is flat and fast, is set around the roads of Roscommon town. The series is held over the four Thursdays in April, with a start time of 7 pm for each race. The start line is at the entrance gate to Hannon’s Hotel, which also plays host to Race HQ.

  A popular addition to last year’s successful race series was Roscommon’s Fittest Team. Teams of businesses and groups are invited to take part in the first race of the series (5 per team) and the winners receive bragging rights and the coveted Roscommon Fittest Team perpetual trophy! Vista Med were the inaugural winners and hopefully they will be back this year to try and retain their title!

  Register online with Pop Up Races or enter on the evening at Hannon’s Hotel from 6-6.45 pm. Enter all four races and receive a discounted price of €30 for all four races and a free technical t-shirt. Each race is priced at €10.

  This event is an AAI approved, clock timed. Light refreshments will be served afterwards in Hannon’s Hotel. We welcome all abilities – looking forward to seeing you in April.

  Our annual 10 mile race takes place on July 8th, this year. Another great racing event to save in the diary. Registration for this race is open with an early bird offer of €20 until May 1st. This year all entrants receive a technical t-shirt, medal and goodie bag. Enter online with Run Ireland, Pop Up Races and Athletics Ireland.
