Registration now open for Legends of Louth 5k run

Last Thursday saw the official launch of the Legends of Louth 5K run and family walk in Louth Village.

The Athletics Ireland sanctioned 5k run will take place on Sunday May 12th in Louth Village at 12 noon.

Runners can enjoy the scenic track which loops 5k of beautiful countryside and back into the village.

This is the second year of the event, after a very successful 2018 Legends of Louth run which saw nearly 400 athletes participate on which many said was one of the best 5k routes in the north east.

Online registrations have commenced with an early bird €12.50 registration offer for those that register before May 6th. All proceeds will raise vital funds for the redevelopment of Louth Village Community Hub.

Commenting on the launch of the 5K, event PRO Damien McCann said: “We are delighted with the momentum behind this fantastic event, the success of our 2018 race was phenomenal and already we have seen online registrations stream in from runners across the north east region, it promises to be a great day for competitive runners and family walkers.”

Event Chairman Paul Kelly went on say: “I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the team at St Peter’s Athletic Club who offered superb guidance and advice on the planning side of the Legends of Louth 5K last year and again this year.”

You can sign up for the event here.
