Ballyroan 10 mile and Santa Fun Run us on this weekend

The Ballyroan 10 Mile is back for another year!

The race, which is on this Saturday, December 8, will be run over 10 miles along a scenic meandering route, starting in Ballyroan before heading towards the heritage town of Abbeyleix.

The 5k run starts at 11.45am and 10 mile starts at 12noon.

The two lap course allows spectators to add to the electric atmosphere.

And, of course, Ballyroan Abbeyleix & District A.C’s renowned refreshments will greet you once you cross the finish line!

Group tickets (10 or more) discounted by 10%. On the day registration available for €35.

Tops for the first 300 registered in the 10 mile. A medal for all 10 mile finisher!
