The race starts at Waterford’s Viking Triangle in Waterford city and goes out the Tramore road to finish in Tramore outside Splashworld. Prizes for top men and women and age categories. Showers, changing facilities, refreshments, and prize giving will be in the GAA centre in Tramore after.

This is a point to point race so don’t forget to organise a lift back into town or check out the Bus Eireann bus time table.

The School Run 2020

The School Run, formerly the Castlecomer 10k & 5k will take place on Friday 19th June. All proceed for the event go to the Presentation Convent National School in Castlecomer. This year sees the introduction of medals for all 5 and 10k participants. Again there will be chip timing, great postrace refreshments.

The scenic surrounds and undulations of the Discovery Park make this a run like no other. Challenging but very rewarding. The route starts on the Dublin Road at the church and goes out the road past Ormonde Brick and then into the woods. After approximately 1.5km there is a good downhill stretch which lasts for 1 kilometre. The only other uphill of note is when running towards the elf village area but its short lived. The finish line is close to the car park and main Discovery Park entrance.

There is also a 5k corporate challenge where teams of 4 compete with the best 3 times to count. The entry price is €50 for a team of four.

Both the 10k & 5k start at 8pm. The Castlecomer 10k is two loops of 5k with 85% of it off road on beautiful trails. The 5k is one loop.

Entry is €20 for 10k and €15 for 5k. Online registration is available until 10pm on Wednesday 17th June
