Ballyfin GAA with the kind cooperation of Ballyfin Demesne host our Annual Run/Walk on Sunday 2nd February 2020 at 11.30am.

We are once again delighted to announce that the 2020 route will encompass the grounds, buildings, woodlands, Tower and lake.

Route: The 6K route will start in the exclusive grounds of Ballyfin House just off the main avenue where it heads through the farm buildings and up to the Tower taking in just some of the 614 acres of Parklands. Following this avenue participants will soon catch sight of the majestic Main House, long admired as the most lavish Regency mansion in Ireland, which has recently been restored to its former glory. The route takes us along the front of the House itself, and makes its way out the avenue where we will turn down by the ‘caves’ before meandering onto the walkway surrounding the lake.

We will make our way all around the lake taking in some of the most spectacular of views, climbing back up to the main avenue and making our way towards the ‘Main Entrance’ Gate with our finish on the avenue within the grounds.

Whether you walk or run we look forward to welcoming you to our 6K, and we hope its a very enjoyable return to Ballyfin for many of you who attended Patrician Brothers Ballyfin and to others who wish to see inside this exclusive estate!!

Some light refreshments will be available after the event.

PLEASE FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS FROM STEWARDS WHEN YOU ARRIVE IN THE LOCALITY REGARDING PARKING, REGISTRATION, STARTING THE RACE, ALONG THE ROUTE AND AT THE FINISH.

IT IS OUR BEST INTENTION THAT EVERYBODY ENJOYS THIS EVENT TO THE FULLEST AND IN THE SAFEST WAY. WE GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR COOPERATION IN TRYING TO ACHIEVE THIS.
