ON Friday October 26 at 7.30pm An Ríocht Athletic Club will host a 5K with a difference and it promises be a great start to the Halloween festivities.
The run/walk will take place on the Black Road route and each competitor will get a headlamp to light up their way.
"This event will cater for both the experienced runners and those who have just started the current Couch to 5k programme. It will give the beginners an opportunity to get out and experience the fun of taking part," said a club spokesperson.
There is a prize for the best costume and refreshments will be served in the clubhouse after the run. Entry fee is €10 and this includes purchase of a headlamp.
The Couch to 5k programme is going from strength to strength with training taking place on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights from: 7.15pm for beginners and 8pm for those who have completed the first programme over the summer.
Training takes place under floodlights on the track. This provides a very safe environment for both adults and children.
