Over thirty teams and two individual runners have already signed up for Parnell AC’s The Relay, to be held on Saturday June 10 (7am)
The race, for teams of five, begins in Avondale Forest Park, Rathdrum, crosses over through the Clara Vale and continues on the Avonmore Way.
From there, the route follows the Wicklow Way towards Lough Tay, before turning back and returning to Laragh and then a final leg over Mullacor mountain to the finish at the Glenmalure Lodge.
Thanks to generous sponsorship from Ordnance Survey Ireland, Wicklow Sports Partnership and Martin Breen Motor Services, there are generous cash prizes upfront – €1,000 for the winners, €600 for second and €400 for third, as well as €200 for the solo winner.
For most teams however, the challenge is to finish. Entry close tomorrow (Saturday June 3). Entry is €25 per person. Details www.therelay.ie
