Newry City Runners is delighted to announce that the Kevin Heaney 5k Memorial Race (The Christmas Classic) in honour of all runners that have sadly passed, will take place on Sunday 13th December 2020. The race is on a perfectly flat route which should make for some exceptionally quick times.
We are really pleased that STATSports an unparalleled, all-encompassing sports science and performance analysis service within the elite sporting industry has agreed to sponsor the race providing two of their Athlete Series GPS Performance Tracker Vests as prizes.
The 2020 Kevin Heaney 5k Memorial Race will take place on Sunday 13th December at 10:15 – 10.30 in Greenbank, Newry. There is amble car parking adjacent to the start line.
Race numbers are capped at 150 and we expect the race to sell out well in advance so we would encourage everyone to enter early to avoid disappointment.
This is a no frills race. Our aim is to raise much needed funds for the Southern Area Hospice and to give you the opportunity to once again enjoy the thrill of a race. There are no timing chips and runners will be set off at staggered start times in groups of up to 15.
To register your interest please send an email to www.newrycityrunners.comquoting your name, address, DOB and expected time to complete the 5k. Registration is strictly via email and there is no on the day registration. The race fee is £10, which will be collected on the day and every penny will be donated to the Hospice.
