Annual 10k road race to take place at Rosslare on Easter Monday
Published 26/03/2016 | 00:00
the annual 10k Road Race at Rosslare on Easter Monday is in its seventh year and has become a very popular and regular fixture for all levels of runners and walkers.
Organised by the Wexford Triathlon Club, Rosslare was the chosen route as this is where the Wexford Triathlon club first started out almost nine years ago. The start time is 11 a.m. from the beach car park in Rosslare Strand.
It's also a quiet location, especially with the morning start, with safe roads. The course is two laps of Rosslare Strand, starting in the village, looping out along the back roads, returning to the village, then out again for the second lap. The roads are mainly flat, with a couple of quick hills, just to make it interesting, and a fast downhill finish.
For the runner who likes accuracy, last year it was officially measured and it is now precisely ten kilometres, and each kilometre is signed. The race now has everything you'd except, chip timing, top prizes, tshirts for the first 250 entrants, plenty of marshals and loads of tea, coffee and food at the finish.
Kelly's Hotel and Spa of Rosslare have been great supporters of the race over the years and once again this year they are sponsoring the main prizes and technical Tshirts.
The race is also supported by Wexford Triathlon club member Fran Traynor and Carne Beach Caravan and Camping Park. Details for entry and prizes can be found on wextriclub.com, their facebook page and active.com.
