Sunday 26th of February, the Annual Adare 10k road race will be taking place in the village at 1pm. With 1,000 entries plus volunteers, we expect the village to be busy for the few hours either side of the race. The race is taking in the usual route and there will be road race signs along the route and volunteers at all the junctions.
The race is main sponsored by Curtin’s Londis on the Station Road. David has been a great supporter over the years and this year takes the role of main sponsor. Other sponsors include: Cois Sionna Desmond Credit Union, AIB, John Lynch Physiotherapy, Cowper’s Jewellers, Kanturk Credit Union, FBD, Abbeyfeale Credit Union, Roches Feeds, Mallow Credit Union and Brian Geary Toyota.
The race is run by West Limerick AC, with proceeds going back into the club, supporting its 300 strong juvenile, adult and fit4life membership in participating in County, Munster & All-Ireland Cross Country and Track & Field championships.
This year is a big year for the club and the West Limerick region, with a brand new athletics track opening in late spring/early summer in Newcastle West as part of the development of Limerick Regional Athletics Hub.
