Upcoming Recommended Races

Stook 2015
The 4th year of the Stook 10 Mile and 5k Dash, hosted by Gowran AC and Young Ireland’s GAA. All the good stuff you’d expect from a club race – AAI permit, accurate course, chip timing, water stations – plus a whole lot more…unique finisher cowbells, the flying mile – ireland’s fast timed down hill mile, great refreshments – and new for 2015 is the “rave for the brave” on top of stook hill….only €20. Get in there.
