Dromiskin 5k - Race Day Arrangements

09 Sep 2017

Along with St Peters AC, we are very proud to be jointly hosting the 3rd Annual Dromiskin 5k. The Dromiskin fit club established the event over the last two years and the other two community clubs hope to keep this great event going for many more years to come. Indeed all three clubs recently came together to officially launch this year’s event, along with Main Sponsor, Declan Loy of Viking Windows. It is a great example of different community groups working together in Sport.

This year’s race takes place on Saturday 9th September @ 7pm. Race entry is €15 which includes a long sleeve Technical Shirt. (Note: There is no late entry charge on the day and no additional admin charge for booking online. All our entrants pay €15 Only!) This shirt was originally only for the first 200 registered, but given that the event reached this number of registered with nearly a month to go it has been extended to the first 300. But this is expected to be filled before the day, so register online at https://register.primoevents.com/ps/event/Dromiskin5K20172.



As well as the Online registration, there will of course be registration on the day.
