Derek Daly Memorial 5Km Run

The annual Derek Daly 5Km Memorial Run will take place on St. Stephens Day, (December 26th). 

The race starts at the clubhouse in Garrycastle at 12 noon, with registration in the clubhouse from 11:00 am.

The race is open to all, young and old, men & women, fit and not-so-fit, and is the perfect way to start to burn off the effects of the turkey and ham and pudding and brandy butter and sprouts and trifle and chocolates and the few glasses of beer or wine!

You can run, walk, crawl, or maybe even swim, if the weather is a bit on the damp side!  

We had a huge crowd last year, and it was a great family occasion. We are hoping to see an even bigger crowd in Garrycastle this year. If you are new to this part of the world, you can find your way courtesy of our "Where to find us" webpage. Ample free parking, and changing facilities if needed in the clubhouse and dressing rooms.

Cost of entry:

    Individual : €10  
    Family (any number of members, but must be related) : €20

There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes for both men and women, and a special team event, with a prize for the first team to finish together! No doubt, there will also be a few surprises on the day.

Refreshments served in the clubhouse afterwards.
