Athletes and fun runners from the four corners of Ireland have circled the date on their calendars and are looking forward to being part of Irelands oldest 10km road race. Over the past 37 years, this race has become known throughout the country as a ‘classic’ and with many runners making PB’s over the exactly measured course, it is a ‘must run’ for many runners. A little before 8.00pm on June 18th next, who will lead the charge to the finish line of almost 1,000 runners over traditionally fast Dunshaughlin 10km course?
