KERRY athletes travel over the county bounds on Sunday, December 23 for the popular Duhallow AC Road Race on its return for a new Classic 5km Road Race. A record number of entries are expected for the Newmarket showpiece commencing at 1pm.
Last season, Alan O'Shea maintained a consistent run of performances on capturing outright honours from a strong and representative field that added an international dimension to the proceedings
"We've a tough task to repeat the outstanding success of previous quality fields and hopefully the weather will be favourable. Plans for this season's race were set in motion a number of months ago," said Donie Shine, Chairman of the host Duhallow AC club.
Some of the foremost athletes from across the province including a big Kerry entry are expected to be amongst the entry listing for the race over a fast course.
"To meet popular demand, we've reduced the distance to a 5km event over a measured circuit of Newmarket town," said Mr. Shine.
