Strong Kerry representation expected for Duhallow AC 5k Road Race in Newmarket


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.

Senior race organisers are Donie Shine 086-8149970, Ger Murphy 029-60719, Jerry Twomey 086-8050821 or John Sexton 086 3409744 or email
