Kerry Crusaders encourage participants for half marathon

Fergus Dennehy

Kerry Crusaders are warning all those interested in running the upcoming Listowel 10k and Half-Marathon to register now or risk losing out - such is the huge popularity of the annual run.

The run attracts hundreds of runners every year, and organisers say that this year again is no different - with entry numbers already way up on this time last year.  With a heavy downpour on the day of last year's run, organisers will no doubt be hoping for drier conditions this time around.

There will be both medals and t-shirts for participants in this year's run. The run will take place on Saturday, November 10, with the cost of the half-marathon set to be €40, while the 10k will cost €25. The run finishes on Market Street in the town, and so a big crowd is welcomed on the day to cheer runners home.
