One of the favourite races on the running circuit in the south east returned in July after a two-year absence with the Pink Rock 10K road race and 5K family run/walk attracting big crowds to the event.

Located in the beautiful setting of the Pink Rock, Glenmore, the running was competitive with Castlecomer AC athlete James Kelly coming in first in the 10k with an impressive tie of 33:12, followed two seconds later by United Strides AC runner, Scott James.

The fantastic local atmosphere and picturesque South Kilkenny countryside mean that the event is always a big hit with runners and walkers who take part.

Generations of families took part again this year, with great times recorded by people of all ages.

A chip-timed, AAI approved event, the day could not have been such a success without the huge efforts of St Joseph’s AC club members and local volunteers.

There was an incentive for the runners, with top cash prizes for the first three men and women with category prizes for 1st O40, 1st O45, 1st O50, 1st O60 plus team male and female prizes – four to score.

This event incorporates the Kilkenny 10K road championship race.

Everyone enjoyed post-race refreshments will be available at the Albatros Sports Centre.
