The eighth annual Maynooth 10k and 5k was formally launched at Carton House on March 14th. The launch was attended by the new Director of Sales and Events at Carton House Carlo Boersma and Karen Moylan Senior Event Coordinator. MEC PTA, who organise the event in conjunction with Maynooth GAA, was represented by the chairperson Frances Bradley and the chair and vice-chair of the Maynooth 10k and 5k committee Una Phillips and Teresa Murray. Maynooth Education Campus was represented by school principals Johnny Nevin and Siobhan McCauley accompanied by students of Maynooth Education Campus.

The 2018 Maynooth 10k + 5k will take place on Sunday 20th May at 10.30am. The fast and flat Maynooth 10K + 5K is very popular with runners of all abilities. With its scenic route through St. Patrick’s College and Carton House Hotel, chip timing by Pop Up Races, accurate course measurement and professional organization, the event has gone from strength to strength in the last 8 years.

The 10k and 5k will start at 10.30am with warm-ups at 10.15am. The courses are the same as last year with the 10K starting in St Patrick’s College and the 5K on Convent lane, with synchronized start times there will be no interference between the two races. Walkers and Joggers are very welcome in the 5K so get training and look forward to enjoying the unique route through the historic town of Maynooth!

Maynooth 10K + 5K is a fundraiser for the development and upkeep of the new multi-purpose playing fields, walking track and ancillary facilities for the local schools and community and the new school campus.
