Sunday 5th of March 2015 – Dundalk 10K organisers are pleased to announce their new and improved race route for their 2015 event. The new route will take participants from the DKIT Campus, through the picturesque village of Blackrock and along the rustic beauty of Dundalk Bay before returning back to the finish line where runners can enjoy complimentary refreshments.
The alteration from previous routes has piqued the interest of 2014 race winner Darragh Green who believes that “The 2015 race just got a lot more interesting” and feels “excited about entering and retaining the winner’s position”.
The event, which is open to participants of all fitness levels, takes place on April 22nd at 7pm and registration can be found online at www.Dundalk10k.com or at various signup days across Louth which will be announced on the Dundalk 10K Facebook and Twitter pages in the coming days.
Hundreds flocked to last year’s event, despite adverse weather conditions, and Dundalk 10K Senior Event Manager Colm Durham has warned anyone who is interested in taking part to “Register early to avoid disappointment, as the improved route is attracting huge interest from the racing community ” and he later added that “Obviously we would like to offer a place to everyone that wants to get involved in the event but unfortunately infrastructural and logistical constraints mean that places are limited ,so if you have an interest in participating please visit our website or drop by our sign up stands and get registered as soon as possible.”
Pre-race online registration costs just €20, as online entrants receive a €5 discount, while Race Day registration costs €25. This includes chipping, a race number and a free Dundalk 10k T-shirt for the first 800 entrants. Volunteers are sought for the event and anyone with an interest in supporting the local community is encouraged to contact the event coordinator Paul Crewe on (086) 3023495 or via email at Dundalk10k@gmail.com.
