Roscrea 10k run/walk

These three walkers were welcomed back by Lion Des Walsh.
Saturdays event turned out to be a huge success with almost 300 runners and walkers making the best of a fine Autumn morning to challenge the course around Mount St Joseph Monastery.

Thanks to all for turning out on the day and too numerous to name here. Great compliments from all the participants who felt they have never experienced an event like it for its smooth running and facilities offered at the end of the race/walk.

It augurs well for next year with many more participating.

Thanks Bernie’s Supervalu Roscrea and to Andrew Walsh for providing the shuttle buses free of charge. Thanks to St Patrick’s Day Committee and NTLP for part funding.
