The Lakes 10k (and Half Marathon) in Blessington, Co Wicklow celebrates its 10 year anniversary in 2018 and we are delighted that this year’s event will also include a half marathon.
The route, on closed roads, takes you around a section of the scenic Blessington Lakes. Starting on the bridge crossing the lake, the route heads towards Manor Kilbride, before you turn back toward Blessington to face the only climb on the route from the 6th to 7th km (you meet the climb twice if you’re running the half marathon). It’s then downhill to the finish line – be sure to enjoy the views over Blessington Lake! (Twice if you’re running the half marathon).
The half marathon route is two loops of the 10k route, plus that little bit extra.
At the finish line, you can enjoy a tradition of The Lakes 10k – muffins!
There will be cash prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female, in both the 10k and half marathon.
*A t-shirt (you must register by Friday 17th August to receive a t-shirt) and, based on last year’s feedback; a finisher’s medal.
All race updates will be posted on Facebook – visit The Lakes 10k and Like the page to keep up-to-date. We’d also be grateful if you could Share the event with your friends.
The website, thelakes10k.ie will be updated shortly.
