Ballyroan 5km run and BBQ to kick off festival weekend in Ballyroan

A busy weekend for Ballyroan starts with a 5km run this evening
The final run of the Ballyroan Abbeyleix & District AC’s ‘Run For Your Life’ series takes place on Friday night and starts a very busy weekend for the Laois village.

The run will take place in Ballyroan village at 7.30pm, with registration in Scully’s pub from 6.30pm.

And as the organisers say, “there are two main reasons to join us for this run:

“1 – It kicks off the festival weekend in Ballyroan. Country music lovers will be making the journey to Ballyroan this weekend to see well known acts such as Dereck Ryan, Cliona Hagan, Lisa McHugh and of course Nathan Carter! This will guarantee a great atmosphere around the small, but lively, village. Midlands 103 will be broadcasting from Scully’s on Friday night also!

“2 – There’ll be a barbeque after the run!”

Running, music, barbeque, live radio and a few pints. If that isn’t enough to encourage you to make your way to Ballyroan this evening, we don’t know what is.
