This year we will also have a separate race for Women – see important details below regarding the start for the Women’s race.

After the races, we will have refreshments in Mother Hubbard where the prize presentations will take place.

Sign on at Mother Hubbards  and will be open from 09:00 a.m.

Start is From Mother Hubbards and the race heads out the old Galway Road (R148 through Clonard, and on to Kinnegad), and on then through Milltownpass, Rochfortbridge, Tyrellspass, and will turn around in Kilbeggan and come back in the same route.  Finish line is the same as previous years – just before Clonard Village.

We will keep the same format as last years event.  This proved to be very successful, so we will once again have 3 separate races this year, as well as an extra, separate, race for Women…
