Runegal 10k 2012

Ireland’s most spectacular 10K run/walk RUNEGAL 10k returns for its third year on Saturday July 14th in Dunfanaghy, Co. Donegal, starting at 2pm.  RUNEGAL 10k – The Horn Head Challenge – has built a reputation for being one of the more difficult but rewarding routes in the country, with the tough hills competing with the astonishing scenery of Horn Head to take your breath away.

RUNEGAL 10k has a total ascent of 225 metres to the top of Horn Head giving you spectacular views as you start your descent for a fast final 5 kilometres. The run is officially measured and affiliated by Athletics Ireland and each participant will receive an official race time. The aim of the event is to challenge runners and walkers and give you a change from the usual flat 10k races across the country. As well as that, participants can make a weekend of it and get to visit one of the most picturesque locations in Ireland.

Local man and RUNEGAL 10k founder Adrian Boyle is delighted with the success of the event and believes this year will be even bigger and better. He says, “I always knew that Horn Head would make a spectacular route for a road race and walk. It’s more challenging than most around the country but the views help with the challenge and I think people are looking for something more from a 10k run. RUNEGAL 10k has grown over the past 2 years and this year it plans to be even more appealing to runners and walkers”.

Participants can run or walk the route and it’s all in aid of Donegal Hospice, while a welcoming family setting is expected at St. Michael’s GAA club of Dunfanaghy. RUNEGAL 10k starts and finishes at the GAA club with an after party planned for Patsy Dan’s.

For more information (including accommodation links), you can check out the Runegal Facebook page at Entry for RUNEGAL 10k is only €20, which includes medal, t-shirt, race time, goodie bag and entry to the after party, with proceeds going to Donegal Hospice.
