Wednesday the 4th of July at 8pm the Coillte 10k Road Race in Dundrum Co. Tipperary will run for 27th consecutive year by the local Dundrum Club. The club is delighted to have Coillte once again as our main sponsor. With Dundrum surrounded by trees and forest trails for running and walking as well as having a Wood Products Business in the village, it’s appropriate that Coillte are involved with us in the healthy sport of running.
The race, which also incorporates a 5K for juniors, is based around the Scouts Complex in the village, where the club has installed athletics facilities over the past few years. The race has prizes in the usual categories with a specially Embroidered Souvenir Hand Towel for all finishers. It will be run over the usual flat two lap circuit and there will be plenty of refreshments for everybody after the race. The following list is the men and women winners since 1986.
